Supporters of a plan to improve Milpas through a business district said it’s about cleaning up the streets, removing graffiti and planning more events like the Christmas parade.
But some Latino residents aren’t buying it.
They think it is about gentrification, which could cost them in higher rents and business assessments.
People on both sides of the issue attended a neighborhood advisory council meeting Wednesday night at the Franklin Neighborhood Center.
It may take more meetings to get both sides to agree on whether a business district is needed.
Residents hope to voice their concerns again at a future city council meeting.
