We had six prompt questions from different topics, from unit mix to building heights to green space. The residents gave us a lot of feedback! Here is what we heard from the residents...
Do you agree with the proposed unit mix?
"more bedrooms for people with disabilities"
"no because there are a lot of big families but also considering people with no children, 50/50"
Should we build three-story new construction in order to add additional units?
"I like 2 stories personally to me because of health issues
"new gives hope, inspires people and makes sure that thing are not outdated like the sewage, sharing pipes, electricity, wifi"
Should we prioritize stacked flats or townhomes?
"I feel like a 2 story townhome is better, 3 is a little too much"
"yes, three stories for additional units"
"yes, soundproof spacious for furniture to go up the stairs an elevator for elderly to visit parking problems"
Should we reconfigure buildings within the courtyards to create larger playgrounds?
"yes because many kids and people have space and an area to play in and have barbeque "
"playgrounds for kids with disabilities to play in, have a beautiful development in the Westside"
Should we move some units from Valero Field and Apache back to Alazan Courts to increase the green space?
"max out valero, I think the field would be best to add more units to "
"shade for any playground with building, accessible play equipment, gardens "
" on Brazos, it's better to have it in the middle for everyone to access"
In the sixth resident committee meeting, Able City shared with the residents the initial results of the community survey. The residents participated in an activity that allowed them to discuss prompt questions from the survey. This exercise gave the residents an opportunity to share their thoughts.
