Lim­it­ing the size of houses

Austin American-Statesman - - OPINION -

Re: June 24 ar­ti­cle “Push to limit house sizes sur­prises some.”

This ar­ti­cle is dis­ap­point­ing. It ap­pears that the writ­ers merely spoke with one dis­grun­tled cit­i­zen, not “some.” I re­sent the char­ac­ter­i­za­tion of South­wood Neigh­bor­hood As­so­ci­a­tion as not be­ing up to par with other as­so­ci­a­tions in Austin. This claim is merely the one dis­grun­tled per­son’s opin­ion.

I live in South­wood and think the as­so­ci­a­tion has done a thor­ough job at com­mu­ni­cat­ing to cit­i­zens about the pro­posed ex­pan­sion of the “McMan­sion” or­di­nance. If this per­son was not aware of what is go­ing on, per­haps it is a re­flec­tion of his own dis­en­gage­ment?

Ex­tend­ing the bound­aries of the “McMan­sion” or­di­nance is a good thing for our neigh­bor­hood. It would not af­fect peo­ple’s abil­ity to re­model. It would pre­vent hous­ing that would com­pro­mise the in­tegrity of the neigh­bor­hood from be­ing built. JEN­NIFER THOMAS Austin
