SRCC Specially-Called Meeting on CodeNEXT with Mayor Adler–October 17

Confused or concerned about CodeNEXT and what it means for your property? Please come to an informational meeting SRCC is hosting! Our special guest will be Mayor Adler, who will be ready to hear your questions and concerns about Draft 2. Also joining us will be our representative on city council, Mayor Pro Tem Kathie Tovo, and Karen McGraw from the Planning Commission. Laura Morrison will be moderating the Q&A.

Each attendee will be able to write a question on a note card and submit it for consideration. Anyone is welcome to attend to learn more about CodeNEXT, but preference for questions will be given to residents of the SRCC area, as this event is meant to specifically address our concerns.

CodeNEXT Draft 2 release, and petitions

The second draft of the code re-write has been released, along with revised maps showing how the new zones will be applied. As with the first draft, the public can comment on the draft code directly online, and can make comments to specific parcels on the map. Links to the new code, maps, and supporting documents can be found on the city’s website:

https://www.austintexas.gov/codenext

There will be a number of open houses where anyone can go to learn more about the revised draft and ask questions (see below). The SRCC will also host another informational session in our neighborhood on October 17. Public comment will close on October 31.

Our CodeNEXT committee is still hard at work deciphering the revised code and new maps, and will be researching and commenting on both. The committee is likely to release another position paper for our neighborhood specifically. If you are interested in being a part of this committee, please contact Tom Fitzpatrick, fitz@prismnet.com.

The new draft has already generated enough concern and controversy that a number of petitions have begun. Community Not Commodity has two online petitions relating to displacement and to the mapping process. You can read about them here.

There is also a PAC who has created 3 petitions to put referendums on the ballot regarding CodeNEXT. More information here.

Eat at Lucky Robot and raise money for SRCC!

Lucky Robot is celebrating their 5th year in business by giving back to the community. During the week of October 8-14, they are donating 15% of profits from sales to SRCC! All you have to do is mention SRCC. So please save the date and plan to go down there that week to enjoy some delicious sushi. The proceeds will go toward funding items in the SRCC budget such as park cleanup, newsletter printing, and paying for our meeting space.
