City of Austin CodeNEXT

High-Density Zoning in Heritage

All properties in Heritage will be impacted by the City’s rezoning of Heritage from single-family to much greater density in its recently released “CodeNEXT” zoning plan – no SF-3 remains. The proposed zoning changes would allow a developer to shoehorn 5 residential units onto one lot while prohibiting residential uses on major streets.


  • Change in Property Values
  • Change in Neighborhood Character
  • Increased Density and Use Permitted (and related issues of noise, traffic, and street parking)

What YOU can DO to Become Informed and Ensure YOUR Interests are Served

Heritage NA previously voted to support the Central Austin Combined neighborhood plan

The Central Austin Combined neighborhood plan should be incorporated into CodeNext as it achieves a balanced approach, supportive of greater density in the University Neighborhood Overlay and along corridors, while preserving the diverse characteristics of this neighborhood.
