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

Vincent Harding

City Council, District 1

The next code should provide greater density on corridors, missing middle housing behind it, and protect the neighborhoods to prevent further displacement. Austin should tailor the fee in lieu option and not have same fee for different areas. Neighborhoods and stakeholders should work to develop smaller minimum lot size requirements to help decrease the land cost component of building a house. Further, the next code should remove conflicts and provide a ranking of which section of the code supersedes another section of the code. Each District should absorb their fair share of development.
