Friends of Austin Neighborhoods - FAN says
Join Friends of Austin Neighborhoods at our December Social Hour at Stinson's on Burnet Rd. this Tuesday, December 15 at 7:00 pm. This meetup will be a great opportunity to catch up with friends, see what neighborhood groups around town have been up to this year, and learn more about what FAN is doing to make Austin's neighborhoods more inclusive, representative, and affordable.

The FAN Board will meet at 6:00 pm, and that meeting is open to the public. See transit info here: http://bit.ly/1PV9Lf7

Read more about FAN in a good article in the Austin American-Statesman that talks about our vision: "Austin urbanists embrace ‘YIMBY’ label as part of new political push"

FAN's GOALS (via http://www.atxfriends.org/)

INCLUSIVE
Our neighborhoods should be inclusive and friendly, welcome new residents, encourage participation by the full diversity of neighborhood stakeholders, and offer a diverse, abundant, and affordable choice of housing options.

REPRESENTATIVE
The community needs a neighborhoods-based voice that is inclusive, innovative, and supportive of neighborhood improvement rather than the unsustainable status quo.

AFFORDABILITY
A diverse array of housing options not currently available are compatible with existing neighborhoods, can help make our city affordable, and can contribute to the vitality of our neighborhoods.

SHAPING CHANGE
Austin neighborhoods must continually evolve with the changing needs of the City, and we recognize such natural change presents opportunities to improve our neighborhoods. Accordingly, we support the kinds of changes that will enhance the affordability, inclusivity, connectivity, mobility, and quality of life in our neighborhoods.
