BBB takes on Imagine Austin
Friday, July 24, 2015 by Nora Ankrum
The monthly Beers, Brains and Betterment series is back with a sold-out – sort of – discussion on the economics of Imagine Austin, hosted by the Capital of Texas Media Foundation/Austin Monitor. Although all RSVPs are in, anyone wishing to attend can still register for a standby ticket. It won’t guarantee admittance, but we anticipate room for standby attendees, given that it’s unlikely all RSVP ticketholders will attend. This month’s discussion will delve into issues of sustainable development, growth management and the role of city code. Panelists include CodeNEXT Code Advisory Group member Jim Duncan, Austin planning watchdog Jeff Jack, AURA executive board member Steven Yarak and city of Austin CodeNEXT representative Matthew Lewis. Austin Monitor Publisher Mike Kanin will moderate. The event will take place Monday, July 27, 6:30 to 9 p.m., at the North Door, 502 Brushy St.
