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?

Yes, I think we should remain committed to our current mechanisms of funding until we can find more regenerative and sustainable solutions for long term abundance. It’s important we always explore new ideas while not being reckless in prematurely abandoning current systems. We need parallel and always regenerative innovation.
