The City of Austin Code Department investigated the property described above. Austin City Code violations were found that require your immediate attention. A description of the violations and compliance timeframe(s) are provided in the attached violation report...

Primrose of Shadow Creek Residents were frustrated by inadequate lighting, broken gates and fencing, an overgrown retention pond with standing water, broken A/Cs and uneven walkways.


The Concerned Citizens of Primrose Tenants Association (T.A.) Set out to conduct an inspection of the property and map out to show where problems were.


The residents submitted repair requests and contacted Austin Code. The T.A. accompanied Code on its inspection of the property pointing out problems they had identified. As a result of these efforts new lighting was installed, the front gate finally closes again, A/Cs and broken walkways were repaired and the retention pond has been cleaned up.
