Explain what important aspects of the land development code revision you support.

Jessica Cohen

City Council, District 3

The most important type of change I think we should see implemented into our land development code is introducing transects and form codes to refresh the hundred year old euclidean zoning Austin currently uses. Defining areas as rural to high density/urban while also ensuring people do not have to drive to get to the places that they often use, would greatly impact the way in which new developments are designed and implemented. This would promote the creation of dense mixed use areas with parks while still allowing for more traditional residential areas away from the core of each transect.
