How will you address Austin’s housing shortage? What regulations will you change to allow more housing where people want to live?

Todd Phelps


In order to address Austin’s housing shortage I would of course propose increasing density where it makes sense. I also would consider allowing for greater height in certain areas where it is currently restricted. I would simplify and streamline the building development code as much as possible. I would remove any regulations that we can identify that are hindering more housing from coming online.
