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

Mitrah Elizabeth Avini

City Council, District 1

I do not support any aspects of the land development code (CodeNEXT) in the context in which it’s been introduced. Rezoning neighborhoods for commercial development adversely impacts neighborhood character and contributes to unaffordability and displacement.  Many neighborhoods are in need of revitalization rather than commercial development. CodeNEXT conflates one with the other.
