Tuesday, July 21, 2020 by Elizabeth Pagano
In a Monday press release, AURA endorsed a number of November transportation issues, including the full Project Connect plan, the proposed $750 million active transportation bond and a Vision Zero bond. In a letter identifying its November priorities, embedded below, the group also urged City Council “to develop a comprehensive anti-residential displacement policy approach for areas impacted by transit investment” by making use of funding structures like PIDs, TIFs and housing funds. “We have an opportunity to build the infrastructure that will profoundly change how we move around our city and to do it in a way that will benefit all of us for generations to come,” said Cesar Acosta, AURA board president.
