The Austin Code Department has a collaborative culture with internal and external community stakeholders, to amplify and aid in the awareness and education of local codes and ordinances. When we work together as a community, we form a network of collaborative learning that will help make Austin safer and more livable. 

Neighborhood and Stakeholder Meetings

Code inspectors are often invited to speak to neighborhood associations and special interest groups. We consult with these groups on their feedback on community needs. The groups become an extension of knowledge to help educate and raise awareness.
