Why not stop building for a while during drought conditions just to be prudent then start up again when the drought is over?
Curtailing construction would have a dramatic impact to the housing market and our local economy. When housing affordability is aggravated, it makes it harder for companies to grow or for new companies to enter the City. This negatively impacts the local job market and could discourage companies from opening or expanding in the City.
