Sound Check has arrived

Tuesday, November 17, 2015 by Nora Ankrum

For anyone curious about the city’s efforts, known as CodeNEXT, to revise the land development code, this week’s Sound Check – a series of events running through Saturday – offers a variety of opportunities for public participation. CodeNEXT is an effort to “align our land use standards and regulations with what is important to the community,” according to an announcement from the city. Throughout the next week, as part of that effort, members of the CodeNEXT team will be testing the development standards they have been working on over the past few months, and they will be sharing the results with the public. According to the city’s announcement, the events will be “an opportunity for the public to learn alongside the CodeNEXT team how different development standards, such as land uses, parking, neighborhood compatibility, density levels, and water quality, impact different types of places in Austin.” A full list of events, which include live music, food trucks and activities for kids, is available here. Although the events are free, participants are encouraged to RSVP here. All events take place at the Linc, 6406 N. I-35 Frontage Road.
