January 1970

Austin's first environmental lawsuit aims to retain public access to Barton Creek threatened by development on the part of private landowners. It was ultimately unsuccessful.  

I think it is a capricious suit which may satisfy someone's desire for publicity, but I don't think it's doing this community, the landowners or the general public any good.

— Landowner Tom Bradfield
