As you know, the City unsuccessfully tried to change the code, what do you believe needs to be done differently to achieve a better code? Will you support working to revise the land development code to provide and allow for predictability and deep affordability? (Y/N; Explain)

Kathie Tovo

City Council, District 9

Yes. I voted to initiate the CodeNEXT process several years ago because I believe that our current Land Development Code needs to be updated and improved. Since then, we have seen that the way this process was handled has fallen short by not reflecting community feedback and priorities. Going forward, I believe that any future efforts should be community-driven and focused on producing a new code whose different chapters work together to better manage our growth in a manner consistent with Imagine Austin.
