During the Sept. 6 work session, the Austin City Council learned about the upcoming Draft 2 of the land development code -- set for release Sept. 15 -- and an updated model of our zoning code capacity.
The presentation detailed how Draft 2 will contain more consistency, clarity and flexibility than Draft 1, as well as a single, standardized spectrum of zones.
Staff also presented a zoning code capacity analysis that compared housing and job capacity from the existing zoning and Draft 1 to Draft 2.
The presentations themselves are hyperlinked above, but also available here. The video of the meeting is available here.
