Fighting to Stay
As Austin's housing market booms, its poorest residents fight to exist
News Story  April 14, 2016, by Joseph Caterine
"...According to Trinh, who is representing the clients, there was no legal avenue to avoid that outcome.

News Story  November 19, 2015, by Michael King
"...• Also on the housing front (more or less) is Item 92, a public hearing considering an ordinance to revise the density bonus program for planned unit developments – in theory to make it more difficult for developers wanting PUD entitlements to pay "fees-in-lieu," instead of creating on-site affordable housing units.
