Where should we be allowed to build multifamily apartment buildings? Should we allow it in more places in central Austin?

Vincent Harding

City Council, District 1

Multi-family apartment buildings should be allowed in every City Council District in Austin. Since the 1984 code came into effect, there has been a decline in the construction of new multi-family units. The next land development code should look at increasing the ability for multi-family units to be built to help meet the housing demands, provide less expensive housing options, provide dedicated affordable units, and increase density to encourage mass transit use.
