Boat Dock Program

Return to the Austin Code Department's 2019 home page
The purpose of the City of Austin's Boat Dock Registration Program is to improve boat dock visibility for public safety personnel on the lake when responding to emergency calls for service. This program was established in response to Austin City Council Resolution No. 20130829-078 adopted on August 29, 2013. City Ordinance No. 20140626-113 requires proper addressing of boat dock structures on Lake Austin, Lady Bird Lake, and Lake Walter E. Long (§ 25-2-1180). During the program's phased implementation process in FY19, 286 boat docks were registered.
