In case you’re wondering about “rough proportionality”

Friday, August 14, 2015 by Nora Ankrum

The city is hosting two information sessions for the development community regarding a new, state-mandated policy called “rough proportionality” that is being implemented by the Development Services and Transportation departments. According to an announcement from Development Services, the policy is a “way to verify that transportation improvements required of developers during the application process are appropriate and fair.” The announcement also says that the city is considering “potential Code amendments to clarify policies related to this process.” More details are available here, as well as at the information sessions, which are scheduled for Aug. 19 and Aug. 31, 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., at One Texas Center, 505 Barton Springs Road, Ste. 500.
