HOME Info Hub

Post by Atha Phillips »

On behalf of CM Pool

Colleagues,

I appreciate the conversation Tuesday on HOME Phase 1. Once again, I want to thank City staff, the Planning Commission, and our community partners Preservation Austin and AIA Austin for their hard work in delivering the draft ordinance and amendments that enhance the benefits of HOME for the average homeowner. I am very pleased about the amendments as they address two of my key priorities to meet the goals of the initiative: preserving existing housing stock, and ensuring smaller, single-family homes.

There has been a lot of information about HOME provided, as well as some key research and media coverage that informs the community conversations about this initiative. My team and I created a HOME hub for this information and more: https://www.atxhomecoalition.com/

My latest District 7 newsletter discusses the Planning Commission amendments: https://mailchi.mp/austintexas.gov/home ... rk-session

I’m looking forward to the public hearing and our discussion at next week’s special called meeting on HOME Phase 1 December 7.
