Ora Houston speaks out on CodeNEXT; Petition Update!

Ora Houston on the 1928 Austin Master Plan and CodeNEXT

Ora Houston speaks on CodeNEXT. We are proud to circulate “Miss Ora’s” (as we fondly call the Council member from District 1) message. She urges us not to repeat history in the shaping of a new land development code aka CodeNEXT. This important warning by Ora should not be missed! Click on the header above and please do share.

Status of the CodeNEXT Petition Drive!

A few days ago someone asked us about this about the petition drive on CodeNEXT, “Are we going to make it?”

Answer: We are likely to make it, BUT this depends on the rate of signatures coming in over the next several weeks. We are getting there. And, we will reveal our numbers at the March 5th Tune-In, Turn-In Meeting. Please come! More below.

Next Monday night, March 5 (the night before Election Day), we’re going to release our petition numbers to you. We’ll also get you ready to be at your local poll site the next day — March 6th, Election Day. We will tell you your rights to petition on public property and at the polls. And, we’ll also share more about about our petition access issues, including at the Austin Public Library. That is why:

Attorney Bill Aleshire will be on hand for this meeting,
so please come, bring folks AND signatures with you!

The rate of CodeNEXT petitions coming in has definitely picked up…a lot! The rain has interfered, but y’all keep persevering!

We hear that some of the neighborhoods are also mobilizing to collect petition sheets that were distributed over the holidays. Keep it up!

We hope to see you at these upcoming events! Mark Your Calendars!
