Austin Mayor Steve Adler and the City Council are going to vote again on CodeNEXT petition placement on the ballot. This is only about your right to vote on CodeNEXT, not where you stand on CodeNEXT itself. This is what nearly 26,000 registered Austin voters signed the petition for. The City Council voted no by 6 out of 20 members in the wee hours on April 26 — read our report about this here. Read our Klep Blog from the top of the page down for updated information. And, please consider signing up for our email alerts too.
Meanwhile, please reach your council member and the Mayor here. Urge them to do the right thing on May 24 to follow the law and to let the people vote!
Click on the picture to read our CodeNEXT page, including the petition. You will see that it’s just about your right to vote on it once the Council votes on it. A Council vote has yet to be scheduled on CodeNEXT itself. IF we get the measure on the ballot and IF voters pass it, it will reserve the voters’ rights to vote on the CodeNEXT final product that is passed first by the Council.
Do you think you should have the right to ratify or reject the Council’s decision on the land development code affecting decades to come of Austin’s future? If the answer is yes, reach the Mayor and Council and plan to be at the May 24 meeting. Be sure to sign up for our email alerts so we can keep you updated.
Remember there’s free parking underground on Council meeting days.
