Tanner Blair started this petition to Austin Planning Commission and

Planning Commission and Austin City Council are currently hearing a rezoning case for 7113 Burnet Road, where the applicant wants to replace a closing bar, distressed commercial, and an auto repair shop with homes for 330 families.

This site is on Burnet, which is an Imagine Austin Corridor and a Transit Priority Network Corridor, and is rated as Very Walkable and Very Bikeable by WalkScore.

This includes 33 units at 60% of the Median Family Income in Austin, providing an opportunity for mixed income families to live in a high-opportunity area. Austin has a goal of 110 annual affordable units along the Burnet Road corridor, and 25% of those are supposed to be in high-opportunity areas such as Crestview. So far, the average is 15/year along Burnet, and only 9% in high-opportunity areas. This one project would double that.

This project is a step toward meeting our housing, transit, and climate goals as a city, and I look forward to welcoming our new neighbors! These items need to pass both Planning Commission and City Council for this project to happen, so it's important that they hear that the community supports it.
