Council adopted the Strategic Housing Blueprint last year, calling for 13,500 new units annually over 10 years. This gets us to break-even in terms of need. Would you support amending the City’s proposed Strategic Housing Plan to increase the number to at least 15,000 housing units per year for 10 years, keeping the breakout across income levels and including permanent supportive housing for those chronically experiencing homelessness?

Yes. The Strategic Housing Blueprint’s comprehensive approach deserves expansion due to the critical nature of the needs throughout Austin. We must act boldly to get ahead of this challenge.
