What is CANPAC?

The Central Austin Neighborhood Planning Advisory Committee (CANPAC) is the City of Austin (COA) recognized Neighborhood Planning Team (NPT) for the Central Austin Combined Neighborhoods Plan. CANPAC was formed by residents and property owners who participated in the neighborhood planning process initiated by the city in 2002. See HISTORY.

The members of CANPAC are from seven neighborhood associations included in the plan boundries. CANPAC will hear presentations from property owners who request a plan amendment and determine the sentiments of the neighborhood associations and stakeholders to present a letter of support or opposition to the Planning Commission and City Council. See REVIEW PROCESS.

CANPAC is a group of volunteers who dedicate their efforts to preserve the Central Austin Neighborhoods Plan.
