She has also been involved in the work to plan and direct those changes, through organizations like the Impact Fee Advisory Board at the City’s Water and Wastewater Commission, and numerous ad hoc City committees, such as those focusing on the Landscape Ordinance, the Tree Protection Ordinance and the Parkland Dedication Ordinance. Much of her recent work has involved protecting water quality in Austin and Texas with efforts at the Save Our Springs Alliance and the League of Women Voters.
