Leaders Fight for Affordability at City Hall codeNEXT Hearing


More than 60 Austin Interfaith leaders from institutions across the City packed into Austin City Council Chambers for a hearing on CodeNEXT.  Leaders stood to support gripping testimony from speakers Florence Briceño from Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic and Rev. Michael Floyd from All Saints Episcopal who argued for strong neighborhoods and affordability, and against displacement.
