Hundreds of people, thousands of comments! The CodeNEXT team wants to thank the more than 800 Austinites who participated in the first phase of CodeNEXT.
Beginning last fall, the CodeNEXT team went to you – the residents of Austin – to get a better understanding of your views on our current land development code and the types of places it helps create. Available for public review, the Listening to the Community Report encapsulates those findings (from August 2013 to January 2014) and highlights key themes identified during the initial listening stage.
Feedback came in all forms including public listening sessions, small group meetings, online surveys and discussions, interviews, case studies and issue papers. Participants included residents, community and professional organizations, and City of Austin departments. The comments pointed to reoccurring themes such as affordability, transportation, environment/open space and neighborhood character.
Intended as a transparent and accessible document, the report will serve as a resource and guide to help inform the continuing stages of the process and deepen discussion by sharing viewpoints across the community.
