Downtown Redevelopment

Round Rock Jelly marks first anniversary

OK, so this post isn't about the public process for approving the Downtown Master Plan, but a little break from that long march isn't such a bad thing, is it? Round Rock Jelly, which meets from 11 to 2 each Friday at Star Co. downtown, marks its first anniversary today. And, no, really, we do not digress. Jelly is a great example of the kind of activities the Plan calls for to bring more people downtown.

Major props to Round Rock resident and social media goddess Sheila Scarborough, who kinda sorta runs it. City of Round Rock tech guru Brooks Bennett and I often join the gang of what is now a regular crowd of about a dozen or so programmers, real estate agents, photographers, web designers, etc. It's a fun group and we do actually get work done. In fact, I finished the last Downtown Redevelopment blog post there last Friday.

We’re hoping/thinking it could lead to a co-working venture in downtown Round Rock. What do you hope/think?

Hi Will,

Thanks very much for posting about our Jelly Coworking Round Rock 1st birthday, and thanks as well to Star Co., Friar Tuck's Pantry and Junior's for hosting our meetings at various times throughout the year.

It has meant so much to me and to all the other Jelly-ites to have the city's presence and support from the beginning. You and your staff make me very proud to live in a visionary community like Round Rock.
