How to give feedback on CodeNEXT
Monday, April 23, 2018 by Katy McElroy
It’s crunch time for CodeNEXT, the proposed rewrite of the city’s Land Development Code. The city has mailed notification postcards inviting all residents to the public hearings that represent the last stage in the process before City Council votes on adoption of the proposed code rewrite. There will be two hearings that are run jointly by the Planning Commission and Zoning and Platting Commission followed by two Council hearings. Not sure what the dickens this is all about? The city’s CodeNEXT website and the Draft 3 Guide are great places to start. There are bike racks and free parking at all meeting locations, and all locations are served by public transit. An overview of the hearing schedule is as follows, but there is more detailed information on the postcard page:
- Joint Land Use Commissions Meeting #1: Saturday, April 28, 10 a.m., Dove Springs Recreation Center, 5801 Ainez Drive
- Joint Land Use Commissions Meeting #2: Tuesday, May 1, 4 p.m., Palmer Events Center, 900 Barton Springs Road
- City Council Meeting #1: Tuesday, May 29, 10 a.m., City Hall, 301 W. Second St.
- City Council Meeting #2: Saturday, June 2, 10 a.m., City Hall, 301 W. Second St.
