C100 Testimony before City Council regarding the Office of Planning’s Streetcar Land Use Study

Meg Maguire

Meg Maguire testifies on behalf of the C100 noting that the streetcar system offers a permanent improvement that says to investors: “We are here for the long haul.” But ultimately, land development should not revolve around maximizing assessed value to generate tax revenue. We have one of the last great opportunities to create new, healthy, demographically diverse communities with convenient access to stable, high quality jobs and an enviable mix of public transportation that historically have made this city so desirable.
