Event CodeNEXT Advocacy Roundtable

November 28, 2015 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm

This event has already occurred.

Please join us at noon on Monday, June 22 for the AIA Austin CodeNEXT Advocacy Roundtable.  The CodeNEXT approach that was adopted by City Council last December indicated that form-based codes will play a major role in the new Land Development Code.  For this month's roundtable we have invited Christine Freundl, from the City of Austin, to give a presentation illustrating the principles of form-based codes and how they differ from our current use-based model.  We hope that this roundtable will better prepare our membership to participate in the City's CodeNEXT

Civic Engagement

We are at a turning point in our city’s history and architects can play a major role in how we move forward. Protecting the health, safety, and welfare of our community means more than good design. AIA’s Citizen Architect Program asks members to use their talents to improve their community through advocacy and civic engagement. This includes serving on City Boards and Commissions. Please consider serving your community and doing your part to make Austin a better place. Apply today!    

CodeNEXT: Household Affordability

Affordability is a critical issue in Austin so don't miss the opportunity to share your opinions of the latest code prescription paper on household affordability. Plan to attend the next Code Advisory Group meeting at 6pm Monday, May 23 at the George Washington Carver Museum and Cultural Center.

CodeNEXT Roundtable: SoundCheck

Our quarterly AIA CodeNEXT Roundtable provided a chance to celebrate the recent AIA urban planning tours and share community engagement opportunities.

Year of the Advocate

Civic Architects here at AIA Austin tirelessly volunteer to influence and shape the policies and legislation that impact our designed environment.  I have yet to find another City where architects are so passionately, constructively active in a broad range of local policy.  


As our City Hall debates disclosure rules for lobbying, I want to take a moment to celebrate some new and growing relationships that have helped us get heard this past season:
