On May 16, Austin City Council will vote on housing reforms designed to make Austin more walkable, transit-supportive, and environmentally friendly for all residents!

These reforms would:

  • allow more homes, taller buildings, and mixed-use, walkable development near Project Connect's future light rail (details here).
  • reduce height restrictions that limit the height of buildings near single-family homes (details here).
  • reduce the lot size required to build one home (details here).

More homes near transit would lead to:

  • improved affordability.
  • more walkability and access to transit.
  • increased ridership, funding, and public support for future transit expansion.
  • better odds for receiving critical federal funding for Project Connect.

Take a moment to use our quick and easy form to email your City Council member to ask them to support housing near transit in Austin!
