Full Audio: Community Forum on Ordinance Changes

July 24, 2019

Last night, we hosted a community forum on the recent changes to the camping and sit/lie ordinances. Nearly 400 hundred community members attended the event which featured a panel discussion on the impact of the changes, enforcement of the new laws, and what’s ahead.

Panelists included:
Chief Brian Manley, Austin Police Department
Veronica Briseño, City of Austin Interim Homeless Strategy Officer
Bill Brice, Vice President, Investor Relations, Downtown Austin Alliance
Moderator: Dean Angela Evans, LBJ School of Public Affairs
