Austin Limits Home Sizes

In 2006, Austin, Texas established rules limiting the size of homes in the central city for reasons of historic character. Residents of South Austin may soon face similar restrictions.

"Andrea McCartney, who lives on Red Bird Lane just south of Southwood, said she sought the association's support because the Red Bird Lane area doesn't have a neighborhood organization and because "there's strength in numbers." "

(...)This is a modest neighborhood. To build something that's two to three times bigger then the other houses is not really fitting with the character," McCartney said."
