Evolve on CodeNEXT
Wednesday, June 13, 2018 by Elizabeth Pagano
Tomorrow, City Council is set to tackle the topic of CodeNEXT once again. Also tomorrow, Evolve Austin plans to speak out in favor of the very involved recommendations on the code rewrite offered up by the Planning Commission. “Many Austin citizens have expressed concerns about the current code, which should not be confused with the process of writing a new land development code,” said Emily Chenevert, CEO of the Austin Board of Realtors. “We want the community to know that CodeNEXT is a process, and that our ultimate goal is to simplify and streamline the code in order to produce the housing Austin desperately needs to accommodate our growing population.” In the interest of clarity, Evolve, which is a nonprofit coalition that includes the Downtown Austin Alliance and Environment Texas, has created an amendment scorecard that articulates their recommendations.
