Vertical Mixed Use – Changes to Ordinance

Austin’s City Council is considering changes to the City’s Vertical Mixed Use Ordinance, which would allow for increased height in exchange for more affordable housing. Details on this proposal are in the agenda backup for the April 21, 2022 City Council hearing. OWANA will keep you posted on developments on this proposal, as it may have major impacts for the residences adjacent to corridors such as 6th Street and Lamar.

OWANA recently sent a letter to our District 9 Councilperson, Kathie Tovo, expressing support for increasing affordable housing opportunities in the neighborhood while also maintaining compatibility standards for developments along major corridors near residences.
