Planning & Parking

Our traffic problem is bigger than just adding a lane to a road.  We must look comprehensively at land use and infrastructure to ensure Austin's growth doesn't push out the very people who helped make it such a desirable city.

  • Expand my Northwest Austin Coalition's innovative citizen-led corridor study process that can save taxpayers millions of dollars and help deliver road and bus improvements faster, at a lower cost, and with more citizen engagement
  • Focus road and public transit infrastructure on connected corridors and end the practice of planning distinct nodes without considering their connectivity
  • Re-evaluate street repaving policies to save costs on unnecessary repaving of low-traffic streets and explore other technologies to eliminate the post-repaving gravel problem plaguing D6 neighborhoods
  • Combine land use and transportation planning efforts to ensure infrastructure matches the current and future needs of residents and businesses
  • Support public transportation serving District 6, especially park-and-ride facilities at Lakeline, Howard, and Pavilion
  • Fully oppose my opponents proposed highway through the Balcones Canyonlands Preserve that would turn Spicewood Springs Road into a highway, increase the risk of wildfires, and do nothing to address actual traffic
  • Fully oppose my opponent's 2014 proposal to open up all of the Balcones Canyonlands Preserve to development
