What's wrong with Austin's Zoning issues. You may have read that the city has the highest development fees in the state. That's only a start to the issues. In this interview, I sat down with Chris Affinito of Heartwood RE to talk about the issues that developers have with Austin's cluster of zoning requirements and Chris goes over how he tackles the entitlement of raw land and how his team uses some of the lesser-known solutions to their advantage when they are developing a lot in Austin. He also offers solutions as to what could be changed now to tackle the issues that Austin is experiencing. Affordability in Austin is one of the biggest issues and our city doesn't do much to solve these issues, despite it being around for several years.
