Affordability. Gentrification. Traffic. These are some of Austin's most pressing problems... but how do we fix them? That's what we'll be discussing at our July Civics 101 Happy Hour, designed to teach millennials in Austin how to engage with and participate in local government. This is your city. Learn how to get involved and make a difference with our entire Civics 101 Happy Hour series (more dates to come).  Presented in partnership with KUT AustinAIA Austin Emerging Professionals, and in.gredients.  

Stephi Motal, AIA, LEED AP BD+C, will be presenting on behalf of AIA.  Stephi is the Chair of the Urban Design Committee and has been an integral member of the CodeNEXT Advocacy Task Force Committee.

About CodeNEXT: The City of Austin is in the process of rewriting its land development code, which has been dubbed CodeNEXT. A land development code is basically a rule book for the city, explaining what can be built where. CodeNEXT will determine how Austin looks 10, 15, and even 50 years from now. And it will affect everything from affordability, to transportation. In other words, it’s a really big deal. Learn more about what CodeNEXT is and how you can get involved with our July Civics 101 Happy Hour.

Free and open to the public!
