COPS / Metro Engages Mayor on Housing & Displacement

Arguing that current City of San Antonio incentives are causing displacement, 100 COPS/Metro leaders pressured the mayor of San Antonio to directly prevent it.  

Fr. Larry Christian, of St. Ann Catholic Church and COPS/Metro, called for increased public efforts to educate residents about available resources including “property tax freezes for senior citizens... and tax credits for homeowners that improve their homes.” 

The mayor affirmed that he is listening to the organization and committed to collaborating with COPS/Metro leaders on this issue.
