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.

Your Input Needed on District 9 Transportation Priorities

INVITATION TO DISTRICT 9 MOBILITY CONVERSATION

Dear District 9 Neighborhood Leaders,

Each year the City of Austin receives funding through our partnership with Capital Metro to be spent on projects enhancing mobility and public transit. Right now, the City Council is engaged in a conversation on how to allocate these "Quarter Cent Funds" and which mobility-related projects in our neighborhoods should be prioritized.

At this time, it appears that the City Council will be looking to allocate this year's funds to smaller-scale mobility projects that can augment our pedestrian, bicycle, and street networks in each Council district.

As your representative, I've been asked to consider a list of high priority mobility projects in our District 9 neighborhoods. The total amount of funding available to District 9 has yet to be decided; however, I need your help in evaluating this list and potentially identifying alternative mobility projects that will meet the mobility needs of District 9.

District 9 is laying the foundation for Austin’s multi-modal transportation future. With the investments we’ve made in augmenting our road network with public transit, bicycle infrastructure, sidewalks, and traffic demand management, District 9 has made significant progress in improving transportation options. Nonetheless, we have far more work to do!

I need your help in two ways:

(1) Attend our District 9 Mobility Conversation – Friday, Oct. 2nd at 3pm – City Hall Room 1029 (aka the “Staff Bullpen”) On Friday, October 2nd at 3pm, I will host an informal meeting to discuss the mobility needs in District 9. We will review and share a list of projects that have been identified by City Staff as immediate mobility needs in District 9 neighborhoods. Due to space limitations, we ask that your neighborhood designate no more than two representatives to attend. Please RSVP to Bobby.Levinski@austintexas.gov.

(2) Ask your neighborhood to provide feedback on mobility needs. If anyone in your neighborhood would like a mobility project considered for Quarter Cent funding, please email Bobby.Levinski@austintexas.gov. While we likely will only be able to fund a limited number of mobility projects this year, we can add these ideas to future conversations and planning processes. The council's Mobility Committee will be meeting on October 5th. If possible, please send in comments before that date. However, I will of course be very grateful for any comments received after that date as well.

Thank you for your leadership and involvement in our community. Please feel free to reach out to my office whenever I can be of assistance.

Best regards,
Kathie

P.S. Please feel free to forward this email to any neighborhood representative that may have been inadvertently omitted.
