    Development Changes Being Proposed for The East Cesar Chavez Neighborhood

    Several new development projects are being proposed for our neighborhood

    that will require altering or rewriting the development rules

    for the Plaza Saltillo Transit Oriented Development area (“Saltillo TOD”).

    This area runs roughly from East 7th Street to East 4th Street,

    and from I-35 to Chicon.

    Developers are asking to build taller and denser projects.

    How our community decides to grow will influence

    the character and spirit of the neighborhood we call home.
