Each January we traditionally take a look at the top issues from the previous year and what we think are the most important stories that will happen in the coming year. We focus on these top issues with our top 8 stories in this edition, including our most-read online story from 2017 on the Great Hills Market redevelopment proposal. However, we also bring you so much more in this issue that will help you get to know Northwest Austin even better.
Our Annual Community Guide aims to provide basic information about the community in which you live, including details on local government, schools and health care as well as a look at key things to do in Northwest Austin. We compiled a list of all the new dining and drinking establishments and new retail businesses that opened in 2017 and are opening in 2018. This mostly local list will help you navigate which businesses to support in 2018.
