What's happening this week?
Week of 10/14/19 through 10/18/19
Following the release of the draft proposed Land Development Code Revision on October 4, staff has been working to prepare for the upcoming community events where Austin will have an opportunity to learn more about the proposed Code and maps.
• Office Hours: Office Hours being hosted by the Land Development Code Revision team are an opportunity for community members to sign-up to meet 1-on-1 with staff to learn how the proposed Code will affect specifc properties or neighborhoods. We encourage people to make an appointment in advance as walk-ins will only be taken if time affords. Offices hours are ongoing this week and are scheduled out throughout October.
• City Council-hosted Town Halls: Several City Council representatives have organized their own Town Halls and invited members of the LDC Revision team to attend and offer information to the community. This week, Council Member Harper-Madison is hosting a Town Hall at The Millennium.
• Public Testing: The LDC Revision team is hosting Public Testing on Friday, Oct. 18 from 1 p.m. to 8 p.m. at City Hall Third Floor. During the public testing event, members of the community will be able to participate in a technical exercise designed to explore how the Land Development Code Revision Draft performs compared to the current land development code using several parcels in Austin as examples. Public Testing Design Packet and Site Maps are available to download from the Participate page.
• Open Houses: The LDC Revision team is hosting a public open house on Saturday, Oct. 19 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Conley-Guerrero Senior Activity Center. This is a “come and go event” where members of the community will have an opportunity to learn more about the draft proposed Code so that they can better provide feedback to the Planning Commission and Austin City Council. Staff from a variety of departments will be available to answer questions and discuss how staff applied the Council Policy Direction in the proposed draft.
Over the next several days we will continue to update the calendar as more dates get finalized. Stay tuned for more!
