Workshop to provide insight into CodeNEXT
Thursday, September 24, 2015 by Nora Ankrum
Although the November CodeNEXT workshop is still two whole calendar pages away, anyone eager to get involved with the effort will at least get a preview next week. CodeNEXT is the city’s initiative to revise the Land Development Code, “which determines how land can be used throughout the city – including what can be built, where it can be built, and how much can (and cannot) be built,” according to the CodeNEXT website. In the fall, a series of interactive public events will coincide with a weeklong workshop (Nov. 16-21) during which the CodeNEXT team will be working on draft development standards. Data gathered that week will then become part of the administrative and public draft codes. The event next week, CodeUPDATE, will provide a “sneak peek” at the November workshop and explore its “purpose and desired outcomes,” according to an announcement from the city. The event will take place Sept. 29,
87 p.m., at the Dougherty Arts Center, 1110 Barton Springs Road.
