The City of Austin is sponsoring a community meeting to provide an opportunity for the applicant, neighborhood planning contact team, nearby residents/property owners and any other interested parties to discuss the proposed plan amendment and zoning case.

After the community meeting is held, the proposed plan amendment and zoning case will be reviewed and acted upon at two public hearings, first by the Planning Commission and then by the City Council. The Planning Commission will make a recommendation and the City Council will make the final decision to approve or deny the request, or approve an alternative to the amendment requested. The public will be provided an opportunity to comment at both public hearings. A notice with the date, time, and location of these meetings will be sent at a later date.
