Melissa Zone launches council campaign

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. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
