  • At the  HPWBANA Annual Meeting on Tuesday, November 14 (6:30 @ Chez Zee, 5406 Balcones Drive), the topic will be “How CodeNEXT Will Impact Our Neighborhood,” featuring guest speakers Ed Wendler, Jr and Barbara McArthur.

  • As shown in the posted here, WANG has requested that the City Council dramatically slow the process for adopting CodeNext.  WANG is concerned that the proposed Code was first published very recently, has continued to be revised in the intervening weeks, and remains incomplete. While City staff and its consultants, Opticos, have had over four years to develop this proposal, citizens are expected to assimilate unfamiliar and confusing terminology and concepts in order to provide a reasonable response to the proposal. We are also concerned that the proposal has been generated with no direct neighborhood input, and we now have only a few weeks to response.  Accordingly, WANG urges Council to extend the time periods for comment, demand that Opticos deliver a complete and comprehensive revised LDC, and respect Imagine Austin, the Neighborhood Plans, and our Future Land Use Map.
