TWCNews: Critics Concerned by Austin Leader's Effort to Raise Demolition Threshold

Tovo introduces code amendment to make it nearly impossible for any new demolition permits to be issued on older properties. It would change the historic landmark code to require a 2/3 majority of the HLC to release a demolition permit, even if the commission doesn’t designate the property historic.

This is Item 53 on today’s agenda, Nov 3rd. Please email the city council if you oppose this change at the link below.
