From Code Next:
Austin is changing every day, and writing a new land development code is all about preserving and creating great places in Austin. Finding the right balance is critical to maintaining harmony throughout our community. How Austin develops is getting remixed, and we need you for a Sound Check. The CodeNEXT team will test different development standards around Austin and share results. The event will be held from November 16-21.
The Sound Check is a critical milestone for CodeNEXT. This is the first chance for Austinites to see proposed land development code standards and their potential affect on future development. We will have opportunities throughout the week for you to see proposed code standards as well as potential affects and tradeoffs through illustrations, maps, and data. In the parking lot outside the testing space, we will have food trucks, music, kids' activities, and more. Please see the attached schedule to help you figure out what works best for you.
The Linc (formerly Lincoln Village) is located at 6406 North Interstate 35 Frontage Road. CodeNEXT Sound Check will take place in Suite 2850A. On the east side of The Linc (facing I-35), there is a tall sign along the southbound frontage road that reads “Pop Up Here” right in front of the section of The Linc where we’ll be.
