Planning Commission to hold CodeNEXT open house

Tuesday, October 24, 2017 by Joseph Caterine

At its regular meeting tonight, the Planning Commission will be breaking up into several discussion groups as a means of expediting their review of CodeNEXT’s second draft. Members of the public are free to participate in as many of these sessions as they would like, although the commission will be focusing on all the chapters of CodeNEXT except for zoning. The commission will start its meeting at 6 p.m. as usual, and shortly after will separate into different rooms at City Hall to go over the different sections of the draft text. The plan is to reconvene in City Council chambers at 9 p.m. The commission is under deadline to submit its official comments on the second draft by the end of the month. “It might be a little chaotic,” Chair Stephen Oliver told the Austin Monitor, “but I think the net outcome of that is that people will see that we’ve actually moved up the hill.”
