City Council, District 3
I do believe that there are more ways to help resolve Austin’s affordability crisis but, increasing housing is most likely going to be the best solution for the already high demand. To put it colloquially, the genie is out of the bottle. We’re going to have a tough time putting it back in. I also believe we need to fight the state on the Texas Education Recapture Fund. Lower property taxes would help increase affordable housing. I’d also like to see a revamp of the SMART Housing Policy to include waivers for fees that have been added since its inception.
