Explain what important aspects of the land development code revision you support.

Susana Almanza

City Council, District 3


Proposition J gives residents a choice to approve or disapprove any plan like CodeNEXT at the ballot. Refocus on the most important aspects of the land code: prioritize the needs of current residents & discourage their displacement; preservation and construction of truly affordable and low-income housing, streamline & update technology of city’s inefficient permitting process, and return to the community planning districts. Fix the problems with existing neighborhood & small area plans. The adoption & implementation of the Peoples Plan will address housing, watershed protection & equity.
