CodeNEWS: CodeUPDATE set for Sept. 29

CodeUPDATE set for Sept. 29

From Nov. 16-21, the CodeNEXT workshop will kick the tires on possible alterations of the land development code.

Want a sneak peek? Plan to attend the Sept. 29 CodeUPDATE, taking place from 7 pm to 8 pm at the Dougherty Arts Center (1110 Barton Springs Rd.). The CodeUPDATE will explore the workshop’s purpose and desired outcomes.

During the November workshop, members of the CodeNEXT team will test and refine draft development standards using focus areas that represent place types across Austin. Lunchtime presentations, daily open studio sessions and “pin-ups” are just some of the “Open to the public” activities planned.

The data gained will be used to complete the Administrative Draft Code (scheduled for Winter 2015) and the subsequent Public Draft Code (scheduled for Fall 2016).

October’s Coffee & CodeNEXT

Each month, members of the CodeNEXT team will set up shop at locations across the city.

Why? We want to hear from you. Take this opportunity to share personal experiences with the current land development code as well as offer opinions about how the new code should be shaped.

October’s “Coffee & CodeNEXT,” taking place from 9 am to 10 am on Oct. 8, will be hosted by Stouthaus Coffee Pub, located on 4715 S Lamar Blvd., #102.

See you there!
