|Vote: City Council Candidates and Proposition Poll
|Friends of Austin Neighborhoods (FAN) is polling its members on their preferred city council candidates and proposition in the upcoming City of Austin election:
If you are already a FAN member, you should have received a ballot. If you are not a FAN member, you may join (free), and you'll receive a ballot shortly thereafter.
- Mayor and city council districts 1, 3, 5, 8, and 9.
- Affordable housing facilities and programs bond.
The poll closes Tuesday, October 18, 2022 at 6 pm CST.
FAN will publicize the membership's preferred city council candidates and position on the subsidized affordable housing bond after the poll closes.

Finally, check out our city council candidate contact sheet, which provides comprehensive information on connecting with the candidates via email, phone, social media, and their websites.
|Comment on Zoning and Rezoning Cases
Want to make it possible for more neighbors, and a greater diversity of neighbors, to live in your neighborhood? Want to make it possible for a new corner store or restaurant to locate in walking distance? Are you concerned that a proposed project is built more for cars than for people?
To make it easier for residents to provide comments on zoning and rezoning cases, the City of Austin has created a convenient comment form. Staff reviews all comments, and they become part of the public record.
