Evolve Austin is a coalition that represents a diverse ecosystem of civic-minded organizations established to champion Imagine Austin, the City’s comprehensive plan for a more affordable, compact, and connected city.  Made up of 30 prominent nonprofit and business organizations who often find themselves on opposite sides of issues, Evolve’s broad membership transcends political and ideological boundaries in an unprecedented way, coalescing around the planned rewrite of Austin’s 35 year old Land Development Code (LDC) to help alleviate Austin’s affordable housing crisis.  The HBA was one of Evolve’s founding organizations back in 2017 and the coalition is chaired by the HBA Board Member Scott Turner.
