How will you address Austin’s housing shortage? What regulations will you change to allow more housing where people want to live?

We as a city need a comprehensive, easy to read land code that the people have a direct say in. Our land code needs not to be written by our councils planning commission (over 50% who are tied to the real estate industry), but rather by various neighborhood association groups with direct ties to our communities. Furthermore, we do not need to expedite our growth by bringing more companies (Amazon) into Austin.
