Superintendent Mark Branson Retires

As the holidays approached, we received some news that was both exciting and sad.  Our long time friend and Superintendent, Mark Branson, announced his retirement.  He was a hardworking and knowledgeable asset to BEC for 16 years, and he will be truly missed.  We will also miss Mark’s lively stories and laugh-out-loud jokes.  BEC wishes Mark all the best for his future.  We sincerely hope that he is relaxing, traveling, photographing and bird watching to his heart’s content.


Franklin Gardens Senior Housing -- Under Construction

On September 26th 2009, the Chestnut Neighborhood Revitalization Corporation (CNRC) broke ground on the Franklin Gardens Senior Housing project.  This project is located at the intersection of Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and E.M. Franklin and will consist of 22 apartments available to low-income seniors.  The project is jointly funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and the City of Austin.  The project team is working hard for a 3-star rating through the Austin Energy Green Building Program.  Additionally, the CNRC is seeking grant money to integrate more sustainable elements, such as solar panels and raised planter boxes, into the project.  We are honored to be a part of this project and look forward to the day when the new residents will be able to call Franklin Gardens home.

For more information and updated construction photos, please take a moment to explore our website…
