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

Mariana Salazar

City Council, District 1

As an immigrant, I want a see an inclusive city that works for everyone and makes room for families like mine. I also value affordability, creating a more compact and connected city, and growing our city in an environmentally sustainable way. I support facilitating the construction of more housing units in a compact way by removing barriers like minimum lot size & parking requirements, upzoning along Imagine Austin/transit corridors and improving efficiency of the permitting processes. The code revisions should be coupled with comprehensive policies to address affordability and displacement.
