For Austin City Council District 1: How would you have voted on the Delwau Campgrounds Project in District 1?

Lewis Conway Jr.

City Council, District 1

I would have voted against it. For the reasons underlined below.

Coleman explained that the primary driver behind this project is not to have a bar but to provide midterm living quarters to mobile neighbors, snowbirds, Airstream trailer Airbnbs and visitors here for the South by Southwest festival. The Mixed Use designation that would allow for several tiny homes on the property is both for campers who are planning on staying for longer durations as well as to house permanent staff who would be in charge of supervising the bar. He noted that this RV campsite would not be considered an affordable housing option.
