CodeNEXT: What To Expect in 2015




Community listening sessions and preliminary work by the CodeNEXT Citizens Advisory Group have set the stage for this current phase of CodeNEXT – revising Austin’s land development code with a user-friendly format and experimenting with form-based code in a few areas of Austin.

This is where the rubber meets the road! To realize a predictable code that achieves the goals of Imagine Austin, there will be areas of conflict to sort through. You are invited to participate in CodeTALKS and small-group discussions around topics the consultant team needs guidance on -- sign up for notifications.

Community discussion


CodeNEXT has launched working groups to take deeper dives into 3 critical areas for Austin’s future: (1) household affordability, (2) infill, compatibility, and “missing middle” housing, and (3) the small business experience.

The groups will meet from January to March 2015. Learn more.

Community discussion



The Austin City Council in late 2014 selected a comprehensive approach for revising Austin’s land development code. The CodeNEXT team will check in with the new 10-1 City Council in 2015 for additional guidance.
