January 12, 2016 City of Austin Notices Re. Title 25 Amendments and Longhorn Run

All these notices were mailed on January 12th and received by Mark Harkrider, President of Hancock Neighborhood Association, on January 13, 2016:

1) Very Important: The City Council will consider amendments to the Land Development Code Title 25 related to Short Term Rentals on January 28th beginning at 4:00 at City Hall.

HNA members have, hopefully, sent letters and will continue to send letters to the Mayor and Council supporting an amendment which phases out Commercial Short Term Rentals in residential neighborhoods. The phase out should begin immediately and end as quickly as possible. Email for all City Council Members at http://www.austintexas.gov/mail/all-council-members

2)The City Council will consider an ordinance limiting the redevelopment of existing small ( Substandard) lots that are developed as a single building site.

January 12, 2016 City of Austin Title 25 Amendment Notice Re. Neighborhood Plan Contact Team Regulations

This notice was mailed to Mark Harkrider on January 12 and received by him on January 13, 2016. For information on this ordinance amendment, go to: Http://www.austintexas.gov/event/neighborhood-stakeholder-meeting-2. The City Council will consider this and will hold a public hearing starting at 4:00 pm on January 28, 2016 at City Hall. There are two issues of concern brought up by some of the stakeholders: 1) the authority of the Director of Planning to amend a neighborhood plan based on a hardship claim, there is no definition of hardship in the amended ordinance; 2) the role of the Director of Planning to be the arbitrator if there is difference of opinion between the one who wants to amend the neighborhood plan and the Neighborhood Contact Team.

Code Next Sound Check Event November 16-21, 2015

Neighbors, I urge you to attend one of the many Code Next public events being held from November 16-21...there are both day and night events. Our Central Austin neighborhoods are not being included in the "pin up exercises" taking place.

If you click on the RSVP link below you ll see all the events, the time and dates for each.

Mark Harkrider, President, HNA

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.

Location Details

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.

More information can be found at: https://www.facebook.com/events/489094574632709/

RSVP here: http://www.eventbrite.com/e/codenext-sound-check-tickets-19194086028

Sincerely,

Paul
