Downtown Austin Plan Interactive Town Hall

 

Join DANA and your fellow downtown neighbors in making our urban neighborhood more livable. Enjoy light refreshments while we take this last opportunity to influence the Downtown Austin Plan's (DAP) two district-specific plans before the final draft is released. Please feel free to forward this invitation to any friends or neighbors you think would be interested in participating.
 
Downtown Austin Plan Interactive Town Hall:
Core & Waterfront District and Northwest District
Wednesday, June 2, 2010
5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Waller Creek Center
625 E. 10th Street (map)(transit)

The district plans are taking shape and the time has come to prioritize implementation of the recommendations. If you haven't engaged in the DAP before or are feeling DAP fatigue, this may be the most hands on and significant point to dig in with us.
 
Graphic summaries of the two district-specific plans can be found at:

The Core & Waterfront District and Northwest District plans provide specific policies, standards and guidelines for redevelopment and enhancements, including:

Location, type, and mix of land uses;
Allowable and conditional uses, density;
Form-based standards such as building typologies, height, massing, setbacks, compatibility standards, ground-level uses, parking and service treatments;
Density bonus provisions;
Preservation of historic and cultural resources;
Parks and open space;
Transportation and Streetscapes; and
Infrastructure.
