City Council, District 1
Yes Ensuring supportive housing for the homeless, low income and affordable housing, less expensive housing options through density in addition to single family, and additional market rate single family, missing middle, apartment complexes, and condominium is the type of path that Austin should take to address the housing affordability challenges that we face. A key focus of mine is preventing displacement and providing other housing options that can help meet some of the demand for housing and not just rely upon existing homes in District 1. Additionally, improving transportation conditions can also help reduce some of the demand on long-time east Austin residents. Research informs us that in order to meet housing production goals, that capacity amount allowed normally has to be set at a higher number.
