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

James Valadez

City Council, District 3

As a community we need to learn from this process: What went wrong? What went right? The neighborhood plans being observed and included in the code rewrite process is critical, we have spent incredible amounts of time and money on these resources as a community and they represent the voices of our residents. The density bonus, fee in lieu and parkland dedication fees need to be recalibrated to make sure we are getting the most out of these tools. I am in favor of measured growth to corridors and activity centers as spelled out in Imagine Austin.
