Downtown Vision

A Vision for Downtown Austin

It's no secret Austin is changing. We need your input on the future of downtown Austin.


The Downtown Austin Alliance is leading a community conversation to shape a Vision and Action Plan for downtown Austin. The result will be an ambitious but realistic Vision for downtown’s future, one we can all rally behind and work together to make happen. 
This work is intended to build on and bolster the work of the Downtown Austin Plan, adopted by City Council in 2011. The vision will also inform the Downtown Austin Alliance’s five-year plan, which maps out how we do our work of delivering and stewarding a world-class downtown for the community.
