City Update to Construction Requirements 

Austin AGC Members:

On Friday, May 1, the City of Austin issued a Frequently Asked Questions document (FAQ) to address the many questions regarding business and social activities allowed here now that Governor Abbott's plan to reopen Texas has been implemented.  

As part of that FAQ, there is one update (on page 4) to the current City policy for construction activity:
  • "How do the Governor's orders impact/change the direction/guidance that the City has for the construction industry? 

    The guidance, signage, and requirements issued by the City to the construction industry remain the same. The City will not impose a civil or criminal penalty for violations of the face covering requirement."
The current guidance and signage requirements that took effect April 13 can be found on Austin's Development Services Department page here.

As always, p lease contact Austin AGC President  Phil Thoden  or Safety Director  Michael Welvaert  with any questions or requests for assistance.
