Is Preservation a Priority for Your City Council Candidate?
City Council plays a pivotal role in shaping preservation policies and outcomes in Austin. Council Members appoint the Historic Landmark Commission; approve funding for historic resource surveys and to staff the city's Historic Preservation Office; and approve historic zoning for both individual landmarks and local historic districts, to name just a few ways in which they impact our cultural and architectural heritage. As a city, and as a preservation community, it's crucial that we have City Council's support for meaningful preservation efforts in the coming years. Austin is growing too fast not to.
Five City Council seats are in play this year on Election Day on Tuesday, November 8: District 2, District, 4, District 6, District 7, and District 10. You can read more about each incumbent and their challengers through the Austin Chronicle HERE. For our part, Preservation Austin has requested that each candidate answer the following questionnaire outlining their position on historic preservation prior to our City Council Candidates Forum on Tuesday, October 11 from 6pm-8pm.
If the candidate for your district is not represented here, it is because we have not received their response.
PRESERVATION AUSTIN DOES NOT ENDORSE ANY CANDIDATES.
