Subject: CodeNEXT District 9 Open House Invitation
Dear District 9 Neighbors,
Please mark your calendars for June 3 for an important meeting about CodeNEXT and District 9.
As many of you know, City staff and consultants released the CodeNEXT draft Code and maps in recent weeks; both the proposed Code and the proposed maps could prompt significant land use changes in most District 9 neighborhoods.
On June 3, 2017, City staff will host a CodeNEXT Open House at City Hall from 10:00 AM – 12:00 p.m., and I hope you will attend.
As we approach June 3rd, please visit austintexas.gov/codenext to learn more about CodeNEXT, to read the proposed land use code, and to view the proposed maps. You can also find links on that page for online commenting and to schedule office hours to ask city staff questions about the proposals. City staff has asked for draft comments on the CodeNext text to be submitted by June 7, 2017, and draft map comments the following month.
If you have specific feedback for City staff and the consultants about the proposed Code or the mapping, please also feel free to copy my office (firstname.lastname@example.org) so that I am also aware of your feedback.
This new Code has the potential to impact every Austinite for years to come. Please come prepared with feedback, ideas, and questions for the CodeNEXT City staff.
Now is the time for community involvement and engagement. Thank you in advance for your important participation.

One thought on “Tovo invites Heritage to CodeNEXT meeting”
I attended the meeting on May 22 in SRCC that attempted to explain the CodeNext changes to our area. Rusthoven kept saying “nothing is really changing”, but that is contradicted by the map &
what appears to be massive concessions to developers & bulldozing of older homes. The website
maps are incomprehensible, & I am really worried about the future of this Bluebonnet Hills neighborhood. I’ll be at your June 3 meeting (on a Saturday, odd) at City Hall & hope to get
a better explanation of this mess. I’ve lived at this address for 37 years & hoped to spend the rest of my life here in peace, which is looking less likely by the day, at least the peace part. It seems that this neighborhood is being sacrificed by the tax-hungry city govt. for a flood of newcomers who place no value on historic preservation or current long-time residents.
Sincerely, & thank you for all that you do,
