Eager to weigh in on the city’s demolition process at this week’s meeting? That’s too bad, because the meeting has been canceled. A message from the Development Services Department explains, “Throughout March, the Development Services Department (DSD) received a variety of input on how to improve the demolition permitting process. Feedback was provided by community members, industry stakeholders, and City of Austin staff at public meetings, focus groups and online. … We feel it is best to slow down the demolition engagement process to allow staff more time to consider the input we’ve received so far, conduct additional research, and seek more feedback from the community as needed.” Those still eager to fill their Wednesday night with contemplation of Austin’s demolition process can always go read the online feedback that has been submitted.
