Fresno City Council President Oliver Baines says a new city-sponsored planning effort could finally give Southwest Fresno residents the community they desire. Speaking on Valley Public Radio's Valley Edition, Baines say the new Southwest Fresno Specific Plan will improve zoning conflicts between residential and industrial uses, and encourage new mixed income developments in the area, thanks to an expedited environmental review process. 

Baines, who represents District 3 in the city's southwest, says for too long this neighborhood has been overlooked. He hopes the new plan will allow the city to prioritize investments in the area and will help improve the quality of life for residents.
