SF-2 core of our neighborhood and prevent inappropriate development in

by educating neighbors and developers about the zoning and development
regulations of our neighborhood. We offer support to neighbors who seek to
protest changes in zoning or land development and are working to increase code
enforcement by City of Austin officials. Chair: Paulette Kern
