Item 93 on Next Week's Agenda

Post by Alison Alter » Wed Jun 12, 2019 5:03 pm

Council Member Ellis,

Thank you for bringing forward the IFC regarding diaper changing stations. Making Austin a more family-friendly city is extremely important to me, and if possible, I would like to join this item as a cosponsor.

Council Member Alter,

Thank you for your interest in being a cosponsor. I'm happy to add you as the 4th cosponsor to my resolution!

I want to provide a point of clarification on the term "gender-neutral access". This wording is intended to indicate that people of all gender identities should have access to safe, sanitary, and convenient diaper changing stations. It is not limited to gender-neutral restroom facilities. We had received this question from a city department, so I wanted to provide that clarity.
