The City of Austin recently updated their web site. Unfortunately, they also updated a number of useful links but changed the URLs. One of those most commonly requested is the link to the City of Austin Code Compliance department, where you can determine whether something is in violation of the City’s code.
You can, of course, always call 3-1-1 to ask questions and get clarifications about code compliance violations or just about anything else in Austin. We are a neighborhood association rather that an HOA with specific rules. As such, we rely on the City codes for guidance in upkeep and maintenance issues throughout the neighborhood. Examples of typical inquiries we receive include yards not being maintained; too many vehicles on the property; and homes in disrepair.
