C100 Supplemental Testimony Comprehensive Plan

Meg Maguire, Nancy MacWood, & Andrea Rosen

To achieve racial and economic equity in this city, and to gain the confidence and community buy-in necessary to do that, we recommend that Council: 1) Retain the current plan as a starting point, as flawed as it may be; 2) Immediately focus our city government capacities on implementing best practices in community visioning and planning to develop community-driven Small Area Plans; and 3) Identify specific sites and potentially convertible spaces and buildings in each ward that can produce affordable housing to strengthen our neighborhoods and enable low income families to achieve a better and more equitable future.
