CodeNEXT seeks input on fiscal health

Tuesday, September 20, 2016 by Nora Ankrum

The fourth and final “prescription paper” for CodeNEXT, the city’s initiative to rewrite the Land Development Code, is now available for the public to read. The prescription paper series has provided “recommendations created to stimulate discussion on quality of life issues for Austinites and how those issues relate to rewriting the Land Development Code,” according to a press release from the city. Each paper has focused on a select topic, with the first three covering the natural and built environment, household affordability and mobility. The current paper focuses on fiscal health, with a particular emphasis on infrastructure and service issues. The community is invited to provide feedback on this and the other papers in the online discussion forum at SpeakUp! Austin. There will also be a public discussion on the fiscal health paper on Monday, Sept. 26 at 6:30 p.m., at Northwest Recreation Center, 2913 Northland Drive.
