Do you support allowing the demolition of existing public housing units without new or rehabilitated replacement housing on a one-for-one basis?

Yes I do NOT support the displacement of ANY resident in the ward. However, I am reluctant to support restrictions that require a one-for-one replacement of public housing. My concerns with one-for-one replacement is that it assumes and promotes a lack of progressive growth in the community. I envision a system that provides some residents of public housing with the tools and resources to get into more affordable and market rate housing. This would have a positive impact throughout the community.
