A new ad-hoc committee has been formed by members of SRCC. This committee includes members of SRCC, members of the Greater South River City Combined Neighborhood Plan Contact Team, and the SRCC Planning and Zoning Committee. The committee will be reviewing the draft code, creating a position paper to reflect our feedback on the code, and checking the re-zoning of our area parcel-by-parcel.

Congress Avenue Urban Design Initiative and Survey

The City of Austin, in partnership with the Downtown Austin Alliance (DAA) and various community stakeholder groups, is developing a new vision for Congress Avenue. This new vision will provide direction for an urban design initiative, which will inform plans for future improvements to Congress Avenue. It will also include preliminary engineering.

Design began in early 2016, and City staff are currently soliciting feedback from local businesses, residents and the city of Austin at large to determine project scope and design features. Visit the website below to learn more and to fill out surveys on specific topics related to mobility and connectivity, culture and history, economics, the environment and social justice.
