City extends comment period for housing plan

Monday, January 7, 2019 by Tai Moses

The public comment period for the draft Austin Strategic Housing Blueprint Implementation Plan and its companion Atlas of Existing and Historical Conditions has been extended to Tuesday, Jan. 15. The Strategic Housing Blueprint was adopted by City Council in 2017 to address Austin’s growing population and the lack of affordable housing options. The overarching goal of the plan is to create 60,000 affordable housing units over 10 years for households earning less than $60,000 a year. Send your comments to the city’s Neighborhood Housing and Community Development Department by email at or by mail at NHCD, P.O. Box 1088, Austin, Texas 78767.
