  6. Brought in redevelopment designation for Barrio Logan as a tool to remove the very blight that breeds youth violence, domestic violence and low self regard.  Redevelopment further created 214 affordable family housing units and a commercial center that will soon provide the community with needed amenities, jobs and a super Mercado offering cultural specific products.
  7. Successfully achieved approval of special parking permits bringing relief for the residents and business that were negatively impacted by waterfront employee auto vehicles that left no or very little parking spaces for the community and further helped to successfully combat downtown and waterfront encroachment.
  8.
