Austin’s voters decided that the GO BIG Mobility Bond is how they want city hall to address the congestion in our city. I will work constructively to implement the proposals in the Bond to address the increasing transportation and development needs we face.
The Bond allocates resources to complete some studies, engineering designs and construct sidewalks and bike lanes in District #1. I will work with the residents of the District to prioritize those resources to address the needs of the district.
I will also work to:
1. ensure that the needs of commuters, individuals who use mobility devices, pedestrians, and bikers are addressed,
2. structure the Bond’s proposals and measure them by their effectiveness in reducing traffic congestion, and
3. mitigate the impact of those proposals on property owners, renters and local businesses which contribute so much to Austin’s unique character.
Our way forward is clear. We must work together, as outlined in the Bond, to reduce traffic congestion in Austin.
