ECPR Coordinates City Hall Press Conference Announcing New Waller Creek Conservancy CEO

January 22, 2015

ECPR has had the honor to work with the Waller Creek Conservancy for the past four years. On Jan. 14, we coordinated a press conference with Mayor Steve Adler at Austin City Hall announcing Peter Mullan as the new chief executive officer of the Conservancy. Until recently, Mullan was executive vice president of Friends of the High Line in New York City.

The Conservancy and the City of Austin, through an innovative public-private partnership, are leading the effort to transform and sustain Austin’s Waller Creek. The redevelopment encompasses 28 acres of the area surrounding the creek in downtown Austin.

Plans for transforming Waller Creek by the design team of Michael Van Valkenburgh and Thomas Phifer and Partners feature a chain of five continuous parks from Waterloo Park to Lady Bird Lake. Two existing parks, Palm Park and Waterloo Park, will be completely transformed, and three new parks will be developed.
