About Transition Zones

CodeNEXT didn’t die—it’s alive and well, thanks to the “transition zones”  proposed by the Austin City Council. Transition zones are areas of existing neighborhoods where city officials plan to do away with single-family zoning and allow the construction of multi-story buildings up to 65 feet high, condominium four-plexes, and mixed-use commercial developments.

Where Transition Zones Are Located

The transition zones proposed by the city council surround most of the major roadways and transit corridors in Austin. They may extend up to five (or more) residential lots into adjacent neighborhoods. The size and number of transition zones may grow in the future, putting more families at risk.

How Transition Zones Will Cause Displacement

When the city rezones land underneath existing homes to increase density, the taxation on those properties will rise sharply. Families who can’t afford the higher taxes will be forced to sell, creating a strong incentive for speculators to buy, demolish, and redevelop the lots into more profitable residences.
