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

Linda O’Neal

City Council, District 9

We need to make room for our new residents, but we need to regulate growth so that that the health of our citizens and the environment is protected. That means we regulate demolitions, minimizing lead dust, that means we renovate older apartment units rather than tearing them down. There were plenty of people who were not urbanists or preservationists, who wanted to learn more about CodeNext, but when they did their research, the information out there was clear as mud. The city needs to engage with those in the middle as much as they engaged with the “urbanists” and “preservationists”.
