Parkland dedication fees are one mechanism by which the city funds park acquisition and improvements. What is your stance on parkland dedication fees, and are you in favor of maintaining them during the Land Development Code updating process?

City Council, District 3

I 100% support parkland dedication fees however, I do not support
fee-in-lieu for developments with usable park land. I also would have liked
to have seen a higher cap for sites in the urban core.
