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

Sabino “Pio” Renteria

City Council, District 3


I support creating a more equitable land development code that addresses the major problems with our current code including traffic congestion, displacement, economic segregation, and flooding. We need a code that can help us preserve and create more affordable housing in all parts of town instead of keeping our current code that exacerbates displacement and gentrification.  We must not only work to preserve existing affordable housing but create new affordable housing for our children and for families that have already been displaced.
