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

Lewis Conway Jr.

City Council, District 1

CodeNext is not the answer to our problems. I believe that we must make changes in order to have affordability, environmental justice, and to create a city that works for everyone. I believe that we should invest in public housing options to increase our housing stock and reduce our homeless population. I believe that we should rethink our zoning to allow for more diverse properties, creating sustainable neighborhoods. Finally, I believe that we should lead in participatory democracy by allowing the people to determine their own zoning laws by putting these issues on the ballot.
