From Austin Parks Foundation:
This Thursday, City Council will be voting on changes to our Parkland Dedication Ordinance, which has not been updated since 2007. This ordinance requires developers to dedicate parkland themselves or pay fees so our city can do so. The existing fees do not cover costs for new parkland and are insufficient to meet our parks’ needs. We need a stronger Parkland Dedication Ordinance that will allow our parks system to support our growing community.
If you’d like to contact the City Council to tell them how you feel about this, you can do so by following this link.
