An Update on the City's Plan and Our Legal Fight
Our community scored a huge victory in March, when Travis County District Judge Jan Soifer issued a ruling supporting Austinites’ right to protest City Hall’s controversial rezoning plan.
That doesn’t mean the next CodeNEXT has gone away.
When City Hall appealed the ruling in April, the judge's injunction was automatically suspended, potentially leaving every resident of our community vulnerable to the rezoning plan.
Fortunately, the plaintiffs in the case have taken action. They filed a motion to reimpose the judge’s order while the case is on appeal, and the court granted their request last week. The injunction is now back in effect and is fully enforceable.
Remember, property owners are only protected from the city’s plan if they file official rezoning protests. If you own residential or commercial properties in Austin that aren't already protected by
protests, visit FileYourProtest.com today.
