AUSTIN, Texas -- The Austin City Council Thursday afternoon approved a resolution finding that CodeNEXT, a proposed rewrite to the land development code, is “no longer a sustainable mechanism to achieve its stated goals.”

The City further said City Manager Spencer Cronk has been directed to develop a new process leading to a code that achieves city plans.

The move comes just about a week after Austin Mayor Steve Adler proposed City Council put an end to the controversial CodeNEXT.

Adler wrote, in part: “CodeNEXT, the current process of rewriting our land development code, is big, complicated, technical, and it’s largely misunderstood. Colleagues, I believe we should consider if the best way ultimately to find the right path to fix our land development code is to cease our current process.”
