SaveTownLake.org’s mission is to protect and preserve Austin’s most precious resource: Town Lake and the Town Lake Corridor (TLC). SaveTownLake.org supports responsible development along the Town Lake Corridor while promoting public awareness of the City’s highest regulatory standards. SaveTownLake.org advocates for strong adherence to current City code, especially the Waterfront Overlay established in 1985. SaveTownLake.org’s goal is to maintain the integrity of the TLC so that Austinites of all generations and socio-economic backgrounds can take advantage of the quality of life afforded to us by Town Lake – the soul of the City.
