Group grades City Council's 'residentialist' credentials

The group, which was formed during last year's divisive Measure D referendum campaign, identified 20 votes that the council has taken since 2012 that relate to land use and development. It gave each council member either a "l" for what it called a "resident-favorable" vote or a "0" for a "residentunfavorable" one. In the survey, favorable votes tend to be those that oppose new developments, promote solutions to downtown's traffic and parking woes, and resist "upzoning" of local sites to enable denser developments.
