The Guadalupe Cultural Arts Center sits on the corner of Guadalupe St. and S. Brazos St. on the city’s Westside.
A recent report from the University of Texas at Austin exposes the staggering effects San Antonio’s code enforcement policies has on displacing hundreds of residents. 
The report looked at the stringent policies that force residents to vacate their homes due to code violations, and led to the city demolishing households in neighborhoods that are 96.4 percent Hispanic or Latino.  
We combed through the 50-page report to highlight some of the more eye-opening data uncovered by UT’s Entrepreneurship and Community Development Clinic. 
The BSB issued more demolitions than orders to vacate. 
District 2, on the Eastside, and District 5 on the inner Westside, have had the most displacement orders.
