PILLARS OF THE CITY
NORTH MAIN STREET FLOOD WALL RECOGNITION PROJECT
The Pillars of the City flood wall recognition project was established in 2015 by Mayor Tom Stiehm with the goal to utilize the flood wall pillars on North Main Street to give recognition to people, in Austin’s past and present, who have made significant contributions to improving the quality of life in Austin related to growth, economic impact, health, education, culture, recreation, communications, business or scientific innovation.
