City of Austin delays initiating Historic Zoning Code Amendment

The HBA coordinated the effort with several other organizations to push back against a proposed resolution. The resolution would have made attaining a demolition permit much more difficult. By forcing two votes at the Historic Landmark Commission, one on whether or not to initiate historical zoning, and a second on the demolition permit (which would now require a super majority for approval), we anticipate that a new version will come back to us in the coming weeks.
