We need to fix our streets, sidewalks and sewers. While we’ve recently made a good start on this, we’re far from done, and we need to continue consistently fixing our City’s aging infrastructure.


We need to streamline the planning and construction process to help reduce the cost of housing in our City, while preserving the unique character of each neighborhood. In a financially responsible manner, we need to provide shelter, job training, sanitary facilities and other services to help our transitory homeless population move off the street and back into jobs and housing.


We need to do everything we can to help address climate change by implementing the City’s Climate Action Plan (CAP), and by being ready to modify it if required by rapidly changing conditions. We also need to continue to protect and preserve our open space, including our regional and open space parks.
