RECA comes out against bond proposition
Friday, October 23, 2015 by Elizabeth Pagano
The Real Estate Council of Austin has come out against the Travis County bond proposition to build a new Civil & Family Courts Complex downtown, passing a resolution against the bond, which appears on the Nov. 3 ballot. That resolution notes that RECA “does not question the need for new or expanded courthouse facilities but does question the proposed location.” The group also questions the increased taxes as well as the prospect of building on “the last undeveloped and unrestricted block in downtown Austin.” In a press release about the resolution, RECA President Ward Tisdale said, “There are other options available to the County that likely have the infrastructure and ample space for new courthouse facilities. … They should, at the very least, look into those and report back to the community.”
