Would you support a policy requiring the City’s Development Services department to achieve its goal of 90% permit review completion within 15 business days across all departments/disciplines by April 2019? (Y/N/Explain)

Natasha Harper-Madison

City Council, District 1

Yes. The delay in the permitting process for residential and commercial projects is a resource draining and time-consuming impediment to the timely and costly completion of far too many developments in Austin. We have got to find a solution that addresses this problem now, especially in the face of astronomical growth and real estate development in our city.
