Historic "all-night" hearing results in an unexpected victory when City Council votes against Jim Bob Moffett's controversial Barton Creek Development. More than a thousand citizens speak out for the protection of Barton Creek.
We'll go to the wall, we'll go to the Hill, we'll go to the devil himself to save Barton Creek. Now the choice before the Legislature is whether to take away our power to protect the creek or to enhance it. If it is the former, the City of Austin will never forgive them.
— Councilmember Robert Barnstone
