WANTED: Completed 'Boxes' by July 31:

Together, we are creating the kinds of places where we want to live, work, and hang out. CodeNEXT is the new City of Austin initiative to revise the Land Development Code, which determines how land can be used throughout the city – including what can be built, where it can be built, and how much can (and cannot) be built. Tell us about your neighborhood "DNA" with Community Character in a Box.
