City Releases Draft of New Land Development Code: Learn more and get involved!

October 9, 2019

The City of Austin has released the first draft of a new land development code and revised zoning maps. The draft code and maps, plus, resources, FAQs, a schedule of events, and project timeline are available online on the new land development code website. Don’t know where to start? City staff created a staff report to serve as a user guide to the full LDC draft.

We encourage Austinites to participate in the land development code process by visiting the city’s LDC website and attending upcoming events. Below are two upcoming opportunities to learn more!
