CodeNEXT is the first major rewrite of Austin’s Land Development Code in 30 years. The existing code lacks the tools our city needs to effectively shape and manage growth. As we look to the future, we need a Land Development Code that embodies the values set out in the City Council-adopted Imagine Austin Comprehensive Plan. The new Land Development Code should give us the tools we need to make Austin a more livable city for all. Draft 2 was released by the City Council with some significant changes. Our guests discuss the new changes and how they may affect neighborhoods in Austin. We hear opinions from both sides of the issues.
Our guests were:
Greg Anderson – Director of Operations with Austin Habitat for Humanity, Planning Commission member
Carmen Llanes Pulido – Executive Director of Go Austin/ Vamos Austin
Jim Duncan – member of ‘Community Not Commodity’
Natasha Harper Madison – community activist
