Big changes may be on the way to Austin’s Sixth St

Seating, dining, live music or even art installations could come to downtown Austin’s Sixth Street Entertainment District, as part of a pilot program referenced in city planning documents obtained by KXAN News.

It’s part of the “Safer 6th Street Initiative,” an Austin City Council-led initiative focused on ramping up safety efforts along the famous street in downtown Austin.

Referenced in the documents is a goal to “bring a wider demographic to the 6th Street District and begin to help change the character of the street.”
