Department » CodeNEXT » FAQ » In neighborhoods with variable lot widths and setbacks, how will Transect zones that differ primarily by the allowed lot dimensions and setbacks be mapped? Will the same block be mapped with multiple different zones?
Transect zones are based on existing conditions around Austin. Some neighborhoods have highly regular lot sizes and setbacks, while other neighborhoods have variable lot sizes and setbacks. In order to reflect the existing conditions in each neighborhood, some blocks in neighborhoods with highly variable lot sizes and setbacks may be mapped using different zones in order to match existing conditions.
