SAN ANTONIO (Sept. 6, 2018) – Today, the Council voted 8-1 to accept the Mayor’s Housing Policy Task Force Housing Policy Framework Report to increase housing opportunities. The following statement was released in response to today’s vote:

 

“I believe that many of the recommendations are the right thing to do and have great respect for all of the committee and community members who were involved in this project and spent countless hours on these recommendations. However, I have a philosophical issue with the recommendation to commit general funds to this effort. This issue truly has no end date and further strains an already limited General Fund.

 

The City has yet to see the success or failure of our $20 million Neighborhood Improvements Bond Program and without such data, I do not believe that we can make an accurate assessment of how a municipality should or could address affordable housing. While I appreciate the work that has gone into getting to this point, I simply cannot support further straining the General Fund outside of the core services that we are responsible for covering.”
