Austin loosens rules for designating buildings historic - Austin Monitor

austinmonitor.com

It may be easier for properties in Austin to be zoned historic now.Until a few weeks ago, if a property owner filed written opposition to the designation, the city’s Historic Landmark Commission needed a two-thirds vote to override those wishes…

The city of Austin moved to make it a little easier to designate buildings historic, but Riverside Homes' Scott Turner tells us why that can be an issue for homeowners trying to sell what is often their largest family asset.

Talk Density to Me: Happy Hour & Advocacy Night

Talk Density to Me: Happy Hour & Advocacy Night

If you’ve heard anything about CodeNEXT - the overhaul of Austin's land development code - you might have noticed that the major debates over what makes a good code center around density. What denser development looks like in practice is more lots built up with larger number of smaller homes (think duplexes, fourplexes, apartments), rather than just a single dwelling per lot. So, what’s the big deal about density when it comes to designing our cities? How is it the key to getting us a more affordable, inclusive, livable, environmentally friendly community? And, how can we make sure that CodeNEXT uses density to achieve these goals? Attend our happy hour to learn about why AURA advocates for density and how you can get involved in our movement. After imbibing at Ginger Man, we will head over to City Hall at 6:30pm for the Planning Commission / Zoning & Platting Commission joint meeting, where CodeNENXT will be the topic of discussion. If you don’t know what these commissions are or how they work, don’t worry! We’ll teach you about what’s going on and how to use theses meetings to advocate for your community.

Don't forget! The "Talk Density to Me" Happy Hour is tonight. Come on out to Ginger Man for some drinks and to learn about why AURA and Evolve Austin advocate for density and how you can get involved in the movement to make Austin more affordable, sustainable, and compact & connected.

I just gave $500 (or roughly 1% of my annual income) to Evolve Austin. But why!? Evolve Austin stands for what I believe in. A compact and connected city that promotes a healthy Austin and a creative economy. It is a large and growing coalition fighting for a CodeNEXT that brings about paths to prosperity for affordability and for our workforce as well as assisting us in shifting away from auto-dependency. There is no Planet B, we must be better stewards to our environment and a continuation of failed low density/transit destroying policies is not the answer. Frankly, I can't afford not to give. The fear-mongering and misinformation being put out by the side that yearns for a bygone era will be far more expensive and destructive to our population. Should the sentiment for "no-change/make housing difficult" prevail through exclusionary zoning/segregation policies we can expect to see a much less interesting/diverse future for our great city. Not to mention a much more expensive one...

Austin Habitat for Humanity

In their recent Affordable Housing Survey, Habitat for Humanity discovered that a majority of Americans and Canadians find housing affordability to be both an important issue to tackle and a positive community benefit. Nine out of 10 Americans (91 percent) also report that owning a home has made them more responsible. What do you think?

Our framers are knocking it out of the park with our newest project in Zilker, a modern farmhouse duplex. These 20ft ceilings are going to be epic! Side B has already sold, but side A is still available. Visit 👉 bit.ly/Goodrich5A for floor plan and more information.
