LDC case to be heard today

Wednesday, March 11, 2020 by Elizabeth Pagano

After a brief postponement, the protest-rights lawsuit against the city of Austin will be heard today at 2 p.m. at the Travis County Courthouse. The group of Austin homeowners that filed suit against the city argues that property owners have the right to formally protest the rezoning of their land under the Land Development Code rewrite currently underway. The city, of course, disagrees with this interpretation of the law. If the lawsuit is successful, it could change the shape of the rewrite and how the citywide rezoning is implemented.
