Austin is growing: Does cutting police funds make sense?
Austin Crime Commission logoThe Austin City Council thinks we’re safe enough. How else would you explain a reduction in public safety spending in next year’s city budget? Despite population growth, increases in violent crime, emergency response times and the recommendations of taxpayer-funded studies, there’s not a single new police officer in the proposed spending plan for the fiscal year 2017-18 budget. Even worse: The budget doesn’t even fund the 12 police positions authorized last year.

Demographic Shifts Boosting Demand for Healthcare Real Estate
Medical Center graphicAn aging population and an increase in the number of people insured because of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) have boosted demand for medical office space in recent years, and the long-term outlook for the U.S. healthcare real estate sector remains strong, according to CBRE’s recently released “U.S. Medical Office Buildings: A Cure for Market Volatility.”

Despite uncertainty about the future of healthcare legislation, the aging baby boomer population will continue to drive growth in the sector across the country. Yearly health care spending has increased steadily since the recession, though there has been a greater focus on efficiency and cost cutting due, in part, to the ACA, and to increased transparency. Healthcare providers have been moving patient volume away from high-cost hospitals to lower-cost outpatient facilities, including medical office buildings. This shift is reflected in a declining vacancy rate among medical office buildings; the overall vacancy rate was 8.0 percent in the first quarter of 2017, down by nearly 300 basis points from the first quarter of 2010. The vacancy rate has continued to steadily decline, despite a slight increase in new medical office supply over the past few years.
