Planning Process Participation
AURA members join and engage with citizens advisory committees like the Project Connect Citizen’s Advisory Group, the Land Development Code Advisory Group, and the Capital Metro Customer Satisfaction Advisory Committee in order to provide an urbanist perspective on issues facing the city.
AURA members analyze data and planning documents produced by government agencies and independent groups in order to develop and evaluate policy proposals. This policy analysis is then published and shared with city council members and other decision makers.
AURA publishes press releases and provides statements to the news media on local policy issues. AURA members communicate with the public about local policy questions through their neighborhood associations, blogs, and social media.
