The City of Austin is still sending written useless snail mail notices to the Neighborhood Association yet there still seems to be no way to see the actual text of the proposed ordinances. They’re only available after the City Council approves them. The only online info is here.
I placed a call to the City Planning and Review Department back in May to attempt to address this and never heard back from anyone. This issue needs to be brought to light as these notices are a waste of our tax dollars because they provide useless information and could just as easily be posted online or sent electronically. I’m not done with this one, just getting started.
Having said that, I’ve posted them here.
