CodeNEXT Advocacy Roundtable

In October of 2013, AIA Austin assembled an advocacy group to focus on CodeNEXT; a City of Austin initiative to revise Austin's Land Development Code  and align it with the principles and priorities of the Imagine Austin Comprehensive Plan. As this is the single most important regulation affecting architects in Austin today,  the CodeNEXT Advocacy Liaison meets with members on a monthly basis to identify key concerns with the existing Austin Land Development Code and current regulatory processes that may prevent the community from realizing the principles outlined in Imagine Austin. We host a free exchange of ideas and information so please consider joining our discussions.


  • CodeNEXT Liaison: David Carroll, AIA
  • CodeNEXT Liaison: Tyler Stowell, AIA
  • City Staff Contact: Jorge Rousselin
