CodeNEXT is Austin's first rewrite of its Land Development Code in three decades. It promised to allow more housing choice, more units by right, more walkability, smart growth management, missing middle housing, etc. But so far it seems to mostly be a recodification of existing standards with, if anything, residential entitlements being stripped away on net; to our read, missing middle remains pretty missing.
The city's resources for the process and product are here. This includes:
- Comparison maps -- make comments on the maps here
- Comment Tool -- make comments on the code text here
- Zoning Framework Table
- Transect Zones Matrix
