New SF Supe Ronen Moves to Protect Latino Businesses in Mission By J.K. Dineen ǀ January 9, 2017 ǀ Updated: January 10, 2017 2:28pm
New Bill proposed by Ronen seeks to preserve Latino Culture in the historic Latino District of San Francisco. Displacement and gentrification continue to be growing concerns of the Latino community in San Francisco.
The bill introduced by Ronen proposes a set of limitations on new developments in the Calle 24 District such as limits in the acquisition of Latino business that have been operating for more than 30 years, and further scrutiny in attempts to merge multiple storefronts.
This framework has the intent to limit large development ventures from undertaking small Latino-owned businesses.
