The Austin community is outraged by the massive 4000-acre proposed developed on Barton Creek by Jim Bob Moffett, which would become known as the Barton Creek Planned Unit Development (the PUD).

When Jim Bob Moffett proposed the Barton Creek PUD... people took a hard look at what could happen to Barton Creek. And the city staff basically had to admit that the rules in the existing city ordinances were not gonna be adequate to preserve the water quality.
