The Mayor is Fomenting Panic!

Community Not Commodity is right! The mayor is wrong! You should panic! This is not "irresponsible." The idea of having bars and other commercial enterprises next to neighborhoods is repulsive to think about. Where would all of the cars park? What about drunk driving? Would the children be safe?! Oh, the "new urbanists" think that people will walk everywhere, ride their "bikes," or take the "bus" with homeless people and transient students. WRONG! People drive cars! That's what our central Austin suburbs were setup for since the start. American way! Community Not Commodity is the group that's sticking up for the downtrodden! If you have to, take out a reverse mortgage and give to them and they will fight for you!

Dear Neighbors:


Are you “irresponsible” for being concerned about CodeNEXT? Mayor Steve Adler’s office seems to think so. His top aide recently tweeted that “[CodeNEXT] panic is explicable - panic being intentionally and irresponsibly fomented.”

The mayor’s office is wrong.

If you’re concerned (or even panicked) about bars popping up in your neighborhood, you aren’t acting irresponsibly. You’re standing up for your neighbors’ quality of life.

If you’re concerned (or even panicked) about your street becoming congested with twice as many cars, you aren’t acting irresponsibly. You’re trying to keep your surroundings safe.

If you’re concerned (or even panicked) about CodeNEXT driving up your property taxes and forcing middle-class families out of Austin, you aren’t acting irresponsibly. You’re committed to your community.

Let’s send the mayor and city council a message. First, download and sign our petition calling for a public vote on CodeNEXT. Then, bring your signed copy to our rally this coming Tuesday:

WHAT: Community Not Commodity’s “Surviving CodeNEXT” Rally
WHEN: Tuesday, October 24th, 5:30 – 8:00 PM
WHERE: Austin City Hall Plaza, 301 West 2

We’ll have speakers, music, and free food and drink. Wear black and tell the mayor and city council that our neighborhoods come first!

Thank you!
