CodeNEXT is a big change to Austin: CodeNEXT is a proposed land use (“zoning”) plan to dramatically reshape Austin. CodeNEXT increases population density. It does so by taxing property at the rate set by the most-dense use of that property.

The petition requires both a waiting period and voter approval by an election before CodeNEXT, or any other comprehensive revision of the City’s land development laws, is legally effective. The petition requires a public vote to approve the momentous policy change of CodeNEXT. Voter approval will ensure CodeNEXT isn’t decided by and for special interests or the city bureaucracy. Here’s the petition.
Sign once: Please only sign the petition one time, even if you’re asked to sign it more than once. Many organizations are helping pass the petition. Community Not Commodity and IndyAustin have the same petition.
