Evolve Austin is a data-driven organization that is committed to working collaboratively with our community to improve Austin’s new Land Development Code so that it better aligns with the goals and principles of the Imagine Austin Comprehensive Plan.
To that end, volunteers from our 30-member coalition spent hundreds of hours carefully reviewing CodeNEXT 2.0 and developing specific recommendations to improve the code in specific areas:
- Affordability, including a summary version of the white paper.
- Missing Middle Housing
- Accessory Dwelling Units
- Traffic Impact Analysis and Connectivity
- Small Area Planning
- Administration and Procedures
Each of the above white papers represents our best effort at providing specific recommendations to improve Austin's affordability, transit accessibility, permitting, planning, and environmental outcomes through CodeNEXT - the rewrite of our Land Development Code.
We hope to see many of these changes incorporated in CodeNEXT 3.0, due to be released Feb. 12, and will continue serving as a resource throughout this important process.
