Austin’s city council officially put an end to CodeNEXT, the city’s controversial, five-year, $8.5-million project that was to have rewritten the metro’s land development code. The council voted unanimously to kill the project days after Mayor Steve Adler recommended the project’s demise.

New City Manager Spencer Cronk is now charged with developing a new way to update the city’s land use code. He indicated he would have a plan to present by early 2019.
