Features

North Austin Civic Association was originally part of a vast rural farming settlement in the Nineteenth Century, and one of the homes from that era still remains as a historic site. The area was annexed by the city in the 1970s and rapid growth and urbanization resulted. Many buildings were put up to replace the open fields and forests and public parks were created. Since then, some of the public facilities have fallen into disrepair; however residents are working to improve the neighborhood’s amenities.

North Austin Civic Association is one of the largest neighborhoods in Austin, so large it is divided into six geographical sections, each as large as some other neighborhoods in town. It has a larger Vietnamese population than average, as well as Hispanics, African-Americans, and other ethnicities.

It also has more rental properties than most other neighborhoods. It is also one of the more affordable areas of town. As a result many students choose to live here.

The residents here are community- and family-oriented, and are active in constantly upgrading the area, such as by adding new playgrounds and preschools. Also, the active neighborhood association takes care to ensure regular policing for crime and drugs and that building codes are enforced.
