Parkland dedication fees are one mechanism by which the city funds park acquisition and improvements. What is your stance on parkland dedication fees, and are you in favor of maintaining them during the Land Development Code updating process?

Danielle Skidmore

City Council, District 9

The compromise that was agreed upon in January of 2016 is a result of
significant community input and debate, thus we want to be able to keep
the fees mechanism intact. We also, however, want to keep open the
opportunity to review and revise ANY ordinance to ensure it’s achieving its
original intent.
