City of Austin Home Initiative, Code Reform

City of Austin Home Initiative, Code Reform

Austin's Code Reform

According to the Austin Business Journal — “Austin developers are waiting with bated breath as City Council considers a resolution that would allow more homes on a single-family lot and, in turn, boost affordability — but other community leaders are concerned the change would expedite gentrification.

The HOME Initiative, arguably the most transformative change being considered in a wave of contested piecemeal revisions to the city’s long unaltered land development code, would allow developers and homebuilders to construct three homes on existing single-family lots. The topic will return to Council on Dec. 7 and council members may vote on the matter.”
