Parks advocates urge City to buy land on Barton Creek for public parkway, but success is limited despite public support.  

Let us look at these things as we would 10, 40 or 50 years from now not as we would today. Select the best areas, acquire them. If this affects potential building lots, let the city pay.

— David Barrow, Planning Commission Chairman
