Pool forwards CodeNEXT group expansion
Wednesday, March 18, 2015 by Elizabeth Pagano
In a post on the City Council message board, Council Member Leslie Pool has proposed a resolution expanding the CodeNEXT Citizen Advisory Group. Pool writes that, after talking with Austin Neighborhoods Council President Mary Ingle, she would like to expand the membership to 16 to include “two citizens of Austin” and also consider the “need for additional members from neighborhoods and the environmental community.” The last part of the resolution reads, “The City Manager is hereby instructed to cause the Code Advisory Group to not make any further recommendations regarding the CodeNEXT project until the City Council appoints the two additional members of the Code Advisory Group and the new members are seated.” The resolution asks that the Planning and Neighborhoods Committee of the City Council, chaired by Council Member Greg Casar, recommend the new members to Council.
