Jeff, Jana and Kayla Holtz- family supporting HCI. Moved here in 1998. Loved the Hill Country View and small town. A lot has changed, a lot has remained the same.

Mike Murphy- was coach in little league in San Diego. Early supporter of project; concerned about the backstop and closeness to the highway. Concerned about NPS pollution request waivers. How would run off be treated? Parking sufficiency?
Eddy Pels- from Dripping Springs supports the project and the turf. Runs a company that work with outdoor synthetic turf. Compared to natural grass, the run water run off and lack of fertilizers is hands down better. Additionally, the turf can handle high use.
Scott Leon- Owner of Positive Baseball development. Has seen a lot of things with the growth, except the addition to new facilities. Kids are going to Round Rock, Cedar Park, etc. to play on other teams. This will offer opportunity to keep the kids here.
Margerie Haddux- child who could have sports here, indoors, but could never play outdoors.
Misty Watkins- Came with her son. She has four children- and they drive all over the State of Texas to participate in tournaments. Can’t wait to have something here. Augie Watkins (5th grade). He is looking forward to doing things here.
Mike Helron- Believes we have needed facility like this for some time now. Needed as alternative for children who may not fit into LTYA. They have to go to south Austin or Dripping Springs.
Scott McGuire- from the Homestead in support of HCI. He has three children.
Paul Kline- from Falconhead West- 6 kids. Travel to Cedar Park, Oak Hill, Dripping Springs. Would like to spend his money here rather than there. Good to pull others in from other communities.
Matthew Pain- Executive Director of Austin Sports Convention. He works on marketing Austin. Something lost in this is the opportunity to market the area. They recruit championships, tennis, tae kwon do….always use the buzz of Austin to bring sports here. They don’t have enough venues.
