Austin Code Compliance Kicks Off Bike Tours

Updated: Tuesday, June 10 2014, 03:58 PM CDT

In an effort to be more transparent and connect with the community, the Austin Code Compliance Department kicked off the first of several bike tours today.  The bike tours give inspectors the opportunity to expand their knowledge of the culture, history, and future growth potential of specific neighborhoods within the city.   The East Austin bike tour got underway from the corner of 11th and Curve Street by Franklin Barbeque. 

That area is just one of 32 neighborhood districts the city plans to explore with wheels on the ground.  Inspectors say this allows them to analyze current development projects and be more proactive with the community, by addressing issues that may arise sooner rather than later.  The goal is to protect the existing cultural areas and preserve Austin's rich heritage without stifling growth.
