Austin Monitor Radio: Impervious cover and the LDC

Monday, January 6, 2020 by Austin Monitor

The city’s ongoing attempt to rewrite the Land Development Code touches on many facets of development in Austin. In this installment of our radio show, we take a closer look at how the rewrite will impact impervious cover – the amount of ground in the city covered by development – and what impact impervious cover could have on flooding and drainage. Matt Hollon, who works for the city’s Watershed Protection Department, talks to Austin Monitor reporter Jessi Devenyns about the current draft and potential changes.

Austin Monitor Radio is produced in partnership with KOOP 91.7 FM.

The Austin Monitor’s work is made possible by donations from the community.
