Leaders Testify on codeNEXT at Joint Land Use Committee

Austin Interfaith leaders from Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic and All Saints' Episcopal testified about the impact of a proposed land use overhaul to a Joint Land Use Committee of the City of Austin.  Leaders told stories about the zoning-initiated displacement of Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Church to East Austin in the 1930s and subsequent displacements initiated by the City since then.   

Though the Committee began the hearing 20 minutes before the planned start, 50+ leaders were there to support their speakers.
