The City of Austin is about three years into re-writing its land development code, and the draft zoning map of the entire city was released April 18th. Check out theCodeWhatsNext social media comparison map to see how the new draft map measures up against the current map. Attend the Citizens Advisory Group meeting  April 19 from 7-9 PM at City Hall to see the mapping presentation.

Unfortunately, the city presentations have been mainly dog and pony shows, with minimal outreach and no real opportunity for dialogue. That is why SOS has joined with several other Austin groups to co-host Code-What's Next? - a community workshop and information exchange. Join local community leaders to talk about equity in Austin and CodeNEXT. Small breakout groups will allow for robust discussions on issues related to the environment, economic development, and neighborhoods, and local leaders of color will help us examine these issues through an equity lens. Together, we'll organize and amplify our voices to put our people and our environment before developer profits. RSVP on Eventbrite and share our Facebook event.
