Candidate Questionnaire Response: Terri Thao, Ward 6

  • Expand housing density and affordable housing through incentive programs and multi- family developments.
  • Identify and locate vacant homes and lots for homeownership opportunities throughout the city.
  • Promote use of city and other resources to help residents update their homes. I would also ensure a broad range of public policies and local investments that supports housing opportunities for all residents, including accessory dwelling units, community land trust and cooperative housing models.
  • Protect and improve the lives of low-income renters and households on fixed incomes — those vulnerable to displacement through allocating money towards housing resources such as rental and legal assistance and foreclosure prevention and borrower education. Key to this will also be identifying multi-family developments where increased rents could easily displace current renters.
