PAZ goes international
Next month, Austin will host a group of urban planners from the city of Jinan in the Shandong province of China, on a visit to learn about best practices of urban planning policies in U.S. cities. The trip is being arranged by the International City/County Management Association, which has organized delegates’ visits in cities in Texas and California that began in March and run through mid-May. City departments including Austin Water, Public Works, Watershed Protection and Planning and Zoning will show off various projects during the May 1 visit. Among the Planning and Zoning efforts will be a session on the future of the city’s One Texas Center property, which is slated to add a large volume of office space or affordable housing in the future as the city moves forward with the South Central Waterfront Initiative.
