What is CANPAC?
The Central Austin Neighborhood Planning Advisory
Committee (CANPAC) is the City of Austin (COA) recognized Neighborhood

in the neighborhood planning process initiated by the city in 2002.
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.
