Austin's Got A New (Proposed) Land Code. Here's When And Where You Can Ask Questions.

Oct 8, 2019

The City of Austin on Friday released another iteration of its land development code; these rules dictate what can be built in the city, how much can be built and where. The process has taken nearly eight years and cost more than $10 million.

The city is hosting public meetings for residents to learn and ask questions about the new code. You can also request a one-on-one meeting with city staff, although you’ll need to register for this ahead of time.

Here are the meetings taking place over the next month:

Residents will be able to see models of various proposed zonings.
