Atlas 14: The reckoning

Monday, July 30, 2018 by Elizabeth Pagano

With the process to amend city code regarding flood plains now formally underway, the Watershed Protection Department is working to get the word out about Atlas 14. To that end, the city will be mailing about 13,000 postcards to those within the 100- and 500-year flood plains (which was revealed in a July 23 memo from Interim Watershed Protection Department Director Michael Personett). And, for questions about the changes that could be coming to city code, Austinites can visit the city website, email or call a hotline (!) at 512-974-2843.
