9/19 - Jeff Jack to Speak on Zoning Rewrite at SN Meeting Thursday
The Sustainable Neighborhoods meeting on Thursday 9/19 will
feature Jeff Jack, Chair of the City of Austin Board of Adjustment, ex-officio member of the Planning Commission, and member of the Land Development Code Advisory Group. Jack will speak on the land development code revision process.
The City of Austin is rewriting many of its zoning laws to bring them into conformance with the Imagine Austin comprehensive plan. Jack, a neighborhood advocate and critic of recent plans, will explain the process and address potential risks. A particular concern is how new code would be applied for neighborhood plans that were designed using the old code, and what neighborhoods with no neighborhood plan can expect.
The meeting is from 7:00 to 8:30 PM at the Village Christian Apartments activity room, 7925 Rockwood. It is open to the public.

This came from Capital Metro. Please note the big piece of misinformation,
"We need your feedback! Regional Transportation entities have
joined forces to study transportation options to help keep us all
moving between downtown Austin and communities in the North Corridor,
includingHutto, Round Rock, Pflugerville, Georgetown, and others. Please
join us for an Open House to discuss various options that are being studied
in the North Corridor."
One of the key pieces of information we need to get out is this in NOT just
about getting to downtown! The North Corridor needs to service Austin's other economic engine. Our high tech/IT center at 78758/78759:
Please show up, and please tell neighbors they need to come and speak up about the North Corridor plan and what the north end of town needs!

What kind of transportation system makes the most sense for Austin? Should the emphasis be on light rail, rapid bus, or cars? If we do move ahead with light rail, what are the best routes?
Sustainable Neighborhoods of North Central Austin and the North Austin Coalition of Neighborhoods will co-host a public debate on transportation alternatives on Thursday, July 19, at 7 PM. The speakers are Skip Cameron, who will argue for an expanded van-bus system, and Andrew Clements, who supports prioritizing rail. Both have been outspoken thinkers in our community on transportation matters. Examples of their positions can be seen at the following link:
The debate and discussion will last about an hour, followed by an update and discussion of the bond package. The meeting is at the Village Christian Apartments meeting room, 7925 Rockwood. Directions - http://www.snaustin.org/meeting-directions
