How will you help address the affordability problems in Austin?

Natasha Harper-Madison

City Council, District 1

Housing affordability is partially dependent on passing a new land development code that allows for greater density and a cost of living that is spread between more people. We also need to consider innovative approaches to housing, such as co-ops and development that incorporates necessary amenities like childcare facilities. These approaches will help to alleviate housing unaffordability while increasing access to other needs.
