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?

James Valadez

City Council, District 3

I support parkland dedication fees. They are absolutely imperative to
meeting the needs of or parks system. In any land development code
update process at minimum I would advocate to maintain them but strive to
recalibrate them to better reflect to needs of the department.
