With regards to expedited permitting for construction projects, do you support the current City policy of requiring large commercial projects to adhere to Better Builder Standards as set forth and monitored by the Workers Defense Project? Please explain your position.

City Council, District 1

I believe these are great goals to have as a City for our projects; these standards are designed to protect
workers and ensure fair and equitable treatment have my full support and appreciation.

I would however want to learn more about how this program is working, and whether this requirement is
either negatively or positively affecting whether or not projects choose to use it.
