Why does Austin allow new buildings and homes to be built that are not using solar panels and indigenous plants? Why do we continue to allow new buildings and homes to install water-sucking grass? Why do we allow new buildings that have NO renewable energy????? Why is Austin allowing all of the cute homes to be torn down for condos....many which are just for Airbnb and won't even be lived in by residents? Austin might as well call itself Caltin....Austin and California....too expensive, suburbs with no end, unlimited building, less green space...and nothing being accomplished with regards to clean high speed rail....Austin is NOT going in the right direction.
