Everyone is invited to a “Sound Check” where the City of Austin’s CodeNEXT team will test development standards around Austin and share the results.
CodeNEXT is the 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.
Soul Track Mind will open up the Sound Check Monday, Nov. 16 at 5:30 p.m. followed by a presentation at 6:30 p.m. kicking off the week-long activities:
Learning-exchange sessions called “pin-ups” when residents can view and comment on the results of the team’s testing throughout the week.
The Sound Check is an opportunity for the public to learn alongside the CodeNEXT team how different development standards, such as land uses, parking, neighborhood compatibility, density levels, and water quality, impact different types of places in Austin. The CodeNEXT team includes lead consultant Opticos Design and staff from several City departments.
The Sound Check is happening every day from Nov. 16 to 21 and admission is free. There will be live bands, food trucks, children’s activities and daily sound checks. All Sound Check events are taking place at The Linc, 6406 N. I-35 Frontage Road, Austin (formerly Lincoln Village near Middle Fiskville Road). A few event highlights are:
