For a Better Future
I will work diligently to attract a sound economic base for the future, including a Grocery Store. With our past efforts you will see new businesses and office buildings in the next 12 months.
GROWTH & HIGH DENSITY
Having been a part of the citizen driven Referendum of 2014, I continue to have concerns about “density.” The new General Plan precludes any more high density in the open land south of 800 North. I will rely on our city Codes and Zoning to guide our city’s further development.
Scalability and Flexibility
The Center St. overpass is under consrtuction! We have plans ready to extend Main St., Mill Rd. and the Vineyard Connector (pending state action). I supported the removal of the Union Pacific spur on Geneva Road; the agreement was approved in 2019. This will enable development of the east side and open more access to Geneva Road. We are in negotiations for reorganization of our water storage,delivery and supply system, all of which I have advocated in the past.
With the completion of the train station (2020-21) we can add all forms of mass transportation (Bus, UVX and TRAX) to the city. I strongly support the goal of Vineyard being a walkable city by connecting/expanding our trail system/bike lanes. I also support the investigation of new transportation technology.
Health and Safety
U.S. Steel & Geneva Nitrogen are in the final stages of removing contamination as per our agreement of 2017. I will continue to support this vital work of removing serious risks to your health and safety as a member of the RDA Board.
