My Top 3 Priorities

  • Preserve the uniqueness and character of the many neighborhoods in the face of so much redevelopment.
  • Create a 10/20 year plan for city budget that adequately accounts for the infrastructure needs to guide our annual budgets and decisions.
  • Zone the downtown to allow slow incremental and highly selective development, making sure that it benefit the residents both by offering increased choices and city revenue, as well as complementing the adjacent civic center.
