The City of Austin is hosting seven Community Walks to tee up the “CodeNEXT: SOUND CHECK” where the technical writers of the City’s land development code – consultants and professional staff from multiple departments -- will collaborate and “check their work."
Austinites are invited to join a one-hour interactive walk Oct. 16 with the CodeNEXT team, the first in a series of Community Walks asking: As the local expert on where you live, what could be improved around you?
Each walk will last one hour, during which residents, business owners and staff are encouraged to share observations and insights. Members of the City Council and Code Advisory Group may also be on hand.

Each Community Walk is in one of Austin’s seven “place types,” that include neighborhood nodes, shopping centers and major corridors. Each area is representative of similar places in Austin, so Austinites who live or work outside these areas are encouraged to participate.
These events are free and open to all residents. Attendees are encouraged to RSVP, wear comfortable shoes, bring water, and bring a smartphone to snap photos and share on social media using #CodeNEXT.
