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

Natasha Harper-Madison

City Council, District 1

I want to work with old and new neighbors to preserve what makes Austin unique while ensuring our city has a future that’s affordable and accessible. We need a new, simplified land development code that facilitates the creation of walkable neighborhoods, efficient transit and neighborhood amenities like small grocery stores, childcare facilities, and green spaces. A code that legalizes the development of gentle density by-right, and eliminates minimum lot size restrictions and unnecessary minimum parking requirements that create impervious cover and high costs for small businesses and housing.
