AUSTIN (KXAN) — An urban planner is the latest to announce a run for Austin City Council.
Melissa Zone is running for the District 7 seat this November. She hopes to represent parts of North and Central Austin.
“As an urban regional planner, I couldn’t think of a better time than now to run because all of the issues that we’re facing are things that I deal with on a daily basis at work,” Zone said. “I handle transportation, water supply, land developing, zoning.”
Zone says she also wants to preserve North Austin neighborhoods and make sure they stay affordable.
