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

Danielle Skidmore

City Council, District 9

For us to improve affordability and reduce congestion in Austin, we need to make more room for people throughout the city including D9-remembering that we’re not just talking about transplants from California or wherever, but new children being born here all the time. We just have to make sure that making that space comes with a real and tangible commitment to community benefits, affordable housing, and minimizing displacement of current residents in our communities. For this to occur, the process must be inclusive and all voices must be heard… We must proactively reach out to all communities.
