City Council Candidates Share Visions for Austin Neighborhoods in FAN Questionnaire

AUSTIN, TEXAS (2022-07-20) - Austin's 2022 city council candidates shared their visions for Austin and its neighborhoods in response to a questionnaire from a neighborhood group that champions neighborhood inclusion and improvement.

Friends of Austin Neighborhoods (FAN) published a single open-ended question in an online form and invited each of the city council candidates to answer it. The candidates' responses are on FAN's website at

"We found that many of the candidates share a common vision for Austin where all kinds of people can safely get around by walking, biking, and riding public transportation, and where they can live in the home and neighborhood of their choice. Yet they differ in the policies they would champion to realize that vision," said FAN's treasurer, Roger L. Cauvin.

The questionnaire comes on the heels of FAN having compiled and shared a city council candidate contact sheet, which provides comprehensive information on connecting with the candidates via email, phone, and social media.

FAN represents about 3,000 neighbors (homeowners, renters, and small business owners) among its 19 member neighborhood associations and individual members living in 219 other neighborhoods throughout the city. A complete list of member neighborhood associations and individual members is on the FAN website.

Friends of Austin Neighborhoods (FAN) is a coalition of neighborhood associations and residents reclaiming the word "neighborhood" to include the full diversity of voices, moving beyond neighborhood protectionism.
