Neighborhoods in the City of Austin represent one of the three pillars of development stakeholders in the City of Austin, with the other two being our environmental protections and our business/economic interests.

Projects that go awry in the City of Austin often do so because they fail to successfully appeal to the needs and fabric of their host neighborhoods. If your project is located inside the City of Austin, neighborhood plan or not, outreach efforts are critical to a projects success.

According to the City of Austin, Neighborhood planning provides an opportunity for citizens to take an active role in the planning process and decide how their neighborhoods will move into the future while addressing land use, zoning, transportation and urban design issues.  The individual neighborhood planning teams work with City of Austin staff to implement their plan’s recommendations.

Visit the City of Austin’s Neighborhood Planning website to find more information and to download specific neighborhood plans.
