Fear of Density in Houston
Under the new plan, 81 percent of Houston would be considered urban (with a density cap of 27 units per acre) and the rest would be suburban.
"Other provisions, however, would allow for narrower lots that could enable builders to squeeze more single-family homes onto a block. Critics said this would lead to more density with no assurance of adequate streets, drainage or parking to support it."
"Developers and other real estate interests generally support the amendments."
