Our city needs proactive leadership. A city that plans and looks to the future for decisions that need to be made today. We need a strategic plan that gives our city, our residents, and our council a clear roadmap for where we want to be in the future and what we need to do to get there.
I support adoption of a strategic plan that addresses projects and actions, reflecting the priorities of our residents. I support a strategic plan that allows us to grow to meet future needs WHILE maintaining Arroyo Grande's charm and beauty.
Roads and Infrastructure
Our city has an area of 5.8 square miles - chock full of roads, sidewalks, pipes, and public facilities.
I support maintaining a healthy PCI (Pavement Condition Index) for city road, balancing deferred maintenance with repair/replacement options, and maintaining our, streets, sidewalks, underground infrastructure, and ADA compliance for the safety of our residents.
Secure Public Safety
The safety and security or our residents is of utmost importance. Our citizens need confidence that, if and when emergency services are needed, the services will be available.
I support proper funding for our Police and Fire Departments. I support a secure future for our Fire Department.
Parks and Recreation
Fresh air, sunshine, recreation... these are all valuable to the mental and physical well being of our youth.
I support city efforts to offer affordable programming, childcare, and to maintain parks and play structures.
With the move to remote education and telecommuting, the importance of internet access for all is greater than ever. It is no longer a nicety, but a requirement.
I support efforts to increase broadband accessibility and availability throughout our city through strategic partnerships with local businesses.
