Welcome to the Brentwood Neighborhood Association website

Brentwood is a neighborhood in north central Austin, Texas. The area is bordered by Burnet Road on the west, Lamar Blvd on the east, 45th Street on the south and Justin Lane on the north. The City of Austin annexed most of the neighborhood in 1946 and purchased the land next to Brentwood Elementary to establish the neighborhood's Brentwood Park in 1951. Running through the middle of the area is a tree-lined street named Arroyo Seco which follows a creek of the same name. This is the site of an annual holiday luminaria presentation.

Brentwood is now a trendy and popular area that is home to gorgeous tree-lined streets and established homes. Many of the homes are bungalow style homes, normally one story, and have a low to medium pitched roof and simple, rectangular shapes. Many were originally two bedrooms and were purchased by GIs who wanted to start families following WWII. The combination of original residents who never left the 'hood and a growing number of young professsionals have built a strong community which fits perfectly with the style of Austin.Welcome to Brentwood, y'all!!!

Burnet Road Better Block - Sun Sep 11

The City of Austin’s Planning Department will be hosting a Burnet Road Better Block event between Clay Avenue and Houston Street on Sunday, Sept. 11 from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm. The Better Block will highlight a new pedestrian signal (you may have noticed the construction) as well as other permanent and temporary streetscape improvements. This is a collaborative effort made possible by various City departments, agencies, area businesses and groups.

The Better Block event will be held along Burnet Road and include the temporary street closure of the 5300 block of Clay Avenue (near Halina Day Spa). The event will implement safety and streetscape improvements identified in recent initiatives, including a new signalized crosswalk across Burnet Road at Lawnmont Avenue. The event will also use temporary street trees and furniture to demonstrate what Burnet Road could look like and make it easier, safer, and more comfortable to walk in the area. The Better Block will feature live music, free ice cream, outdoor seating, and giant games for people of all ages to enjoy.

RE: Grover Family Lane Project




On Wednesday, August 3, 2016, the Steering Committee for the Brentwood Neighborhood Association approved a motion to offer support for the idea of the Grover Family Lane Project.  The Brentwood Neighborhood Association (BNA) has a long history of supporting multi-modal transportation efforts and exploring safe routes for cyclists and pedestrians throughout our neighborhood.  Population growth and traffic congestion in the area are strong arguments for a dedicated cycle and pedestrian lane along Grover Avenue. The lack of sidewalks, lane striping and coherent speed mitigation are also compelling arguments for the project.  This project has the potential to enhance public safety and encourage sustainable modes of transportation.

The continued support of the Steering Committee of the BNA is conditioned on the project receiving 60% support from households inside the survey area that has been determined by the Neighborhood Partnering Program.  Our support at this time cannot serve to represent the opinions or views of residents in Brentwood who live in the defined survey area.  Each resident will have the opportunity to consider the merits of the project and vote accordingly.  It is also important to note that even if the 60% support threshold is met, there will still be opportunities for community input in the implementation of the project.

The resolution adopted by the Steering Committee includes the caveat that we only speak on behalf of the portion of the proposed project that falls within the boundaries of Brentwood. We do not speak for Crestview residents or on behalf of any neighborhood association or group within the area of Crestview. 

We encourage residents within the survey area and the greater community to thoughtfully consider the Grover Family Lane Project and the potential benefits to the quality of life within our community.
