We have a major victory to announce! Earlier today, the state’s 14th Court of Appeals ruled against the City of Austin in a landmark case over its rewrite of our community’s land development code.
The 14th Court unanimously affirmed Travis County District Judge Jan Soifer’s 2020 ruling, which upheld protests filed by thousands of Austinites impacted by the city’s plan. The appellate court agreed that the city violated state zoning laws and upheld Judge Soifer’s injunction, prohibiting local officials from violating your notice-and-protest rights in the future.
We’ll provide further details soon.
Congratulations, neighbors. Together we can build an Austin for everyone!
