CodeNEXT Map District Meetings

Please plan to attend one of the upcoming CodeNEXT Map Open Houses in your district and others. The City of Austin is making big decisions for the future with the feedback it receives from public engagement events.

CodeNEXT is the City of Austin initiative to rewrite our outdated and complicated Land Development Code. The Land Development Code sets requirements for what, where, and how much can be built in Austin.
