My Top 3 Priorities

  • Advance a “Neighborhoods First” approach whereby the input of those impacted by a project carries tremendous weight in the City Council’s decision-making process.
  • Ensure that pending development fits our community
  • Improve communications between the City and our residents, and increase community engagement.
