  1. Fair enough Brad can delete that part of the comment.

    1. Actually, I can’t delete parts of comments. It’s all or nothing. - Brad

  2. You can delete first comment

    how do you actually propose to do those things you are advocating for?

    Generally you can’t preserve or keep our historical charm while being pro development.

    Seems to me Sergio is just using buzzwords trying to accommodate everyone.

    If you go to his website he also states that he wants to incentivize building accessory dwelling units. Again not pro historical but pro development.
