BG Note | Community Know Your History, Too
History is important for any firm engaging and operating in Austin, particularly around land use. The Austin American-Statesman recently had lesson on this over the Fourth of July weekend (see links below). A.J. Bingham, our Founder and Principal, was quoted after it became evident the piece had touched a nerve with the community.
History provides the context which decisions at neighborhood meetings, to Planning Commission, and Council occur. Not having a firm grasp of Austin history puts firms at a disadvantage. History can fuel change or passionate opposition. Know it. Use it.
