Anti-Displacement Task Force has something to say
Thursday, February 22, 2018 by Elizabeth Pagano
Today, members of the Anti-Displacement Task Force will be joined by Mayor Steve Adler, Council members Ora Houston and Leslie Pool, and community leaders at a press conference. According to a notice about the press conference, those gathered will “discuss next steps for the citizen-led group to provide the Council with an action plan to finally do something about displacement in the eastern crescent” and preview the task force’s first forum, which will take place on Saturday at 1 p.m. at the Conley-Guerrero Senior Activity Center. Earlier this month, a city memo hinted at the fact that the task force members might soon angle for an official consultant to help them with their considerable workload as they study a wide swath of issues that deal with affordability and preserving culture in the city. Today’s press conference will take place at 10 a.m. at Mt. Zion Baptist Church.
