RECA calls for change

Wednesday, August 12, 2015 by Elizabeth Pagano

The Real Estate Council of Austin released a second white paper on affordability in Austin yesterday. Like its predecessor, the paper calls for at least 100,000 new units by 2025; however, the new paper takes the tack of diagnosing impediments to building those units. According to a press release from RECA, “In order to achieve the outlined goals, RECA calls for dramatic changes to fix the code and development review process, while also addressing anti-development policies that are given validation and power by entrenched neighborhood associations throughout the city.”
