Tell City Council to legalize middle-income homes in Austin!
Austin's housing rules encourage the building of large, expensive detached homes and make it effectively illegal to build more middle-income homes. Fortunately, this could change soon as City Council considers changes that would legalize the building of townhomes, row homes, triplexes, and more! Diverse housing options:
- are more affordable to middle-income earners and working families.
- curb climate change through more efficient heating/cooling and reducing car-dependence.
- increase walkability and access to public transportation.
- enhance neighborhoods with more diverse residents and a variety of housing types.
Take a moment to use our quick and easy form to email your City Council member to ask them to support expanding middle-income housing in Austin!
