Land Development Code 

The city of Austin's new Land Development Code (LDC) was released on October 4, 2019, complete with a draft code text and detailed map for review. We welcome your feedback and encourage you to voice your concerns by connecting with our office. District 7 staff has met with city planning staff and will continue to work diligently on behalf of constituents. My goal is that neighborhoods will continue to be vibrant places where families can thrive and seniors can age in place. You can read my thoughts on the drafted LDC improvements here

The LDC third reading has been postponed until further notice due to COVID-19.

We will inform you in our District 7 Newsletter once we are notified of those dates. Please look out for updates. 



Here are some useful links from the city's LDC website.

Here is an LDC Resources table listing important planning, transportation, housing, and environmental documents that helped to inform city planning staff on the LDC revision draft.

Coming Up
We will provide information on final LDC votes as the council decides on those dates.

My staff has been reaching out to District 7 neighborhood leaders for several months now to engage in discussions on the LDC revision, and we will continue to do so through this process. Please email one of my policy advisors or with your questions, or with invitations to join your neighborhood group for discussion.
