More input needed on demolition permit process revamp
Friday, July 20, 2018 by Katy McElroy
The Development Services Department has been working on changes to its demolition permit process, which City Council requested in December 2017 after an August 2017 audit showed areas for improvement. As part of the ongoing revision, the department has been holding community input meetings, and the next one has been scheduled for Saturday, Aug. 18, 1-3 p.m. at the Mexican American Cultural Center. Feedback from this meeting will be used to finalize changes to the staff recommendation. For those who can’t attend the meeting, the demolition permit page at SpeakUpAustin.org will open to receive comments from Aug. 18 to Sept. 2.
