Demo meeting #3 this weekend

Wednesday, August 15, 2018 by Chad Swiatecki

The city is seeking public input on proposed changes to the process for issuing demolition permits. The process is going to be redesigned based on the findings in a 2017 report that found city departments weren’t properly working with residents to make sure that safety and other impact issues related to demolitions were being addressed. The third in a series of community meetings to discuss improvements for how demolitions are approved and managed will take place from 1 to 3 p.m. Saturday at the Emma S. Barrientos Mexican American Cultural Center. Feedback will also be accepted online at SpeakUpAustin.org from Aug. 18 through Sept. 2. The Development Services Department will use the combined feedback from all sessions to design a new application and approval process for demolitions, an effort that was expected to take place this fall. Those wishing to attend on Saturday who will need language or other accommodations can call 512-974-1575.
