Summer 2017 SRCC Newsletter

The Summer 2017 edition of the SRCC Newsletter has been printed and delivery is underway. You can also get a head start on reading it here.

Complete delivery of the paper newsletter to thousands of homes takes a few weeks. If it’s been a while and you have not received your copy, please contact Gretchen Otto at president@srccatx.org.

A huge thanks to all the volunteers (area coordinators and block captains) needed in order to hand-distribute our newsletter! For many of our residents, this is still the only way for them to stay informed on what’s going on in our area.

How CodeNEXT Might Apply to Your Property

A local community group has created a very helpful video which takes you step-by-step through how to evaluate the potential impacts of CodeNEXT rezoning on your own property. This video focuses on the new LMDR zoning, which many of you do fall under.

Please take 11 minutes to watch this important video, and if you have concerns, please email the city council.
