Revitalization of our downtown
REVITALIZATION OF DOWNTOWN
We need to revitalize downtown by supporting and engaging small businesses and taking measures to fill our empty office buildings. Decisions have to be based on what is needed right now versus what we can do without temporarily. We must support the Arts sector and promote galleries and other art establishments. Art gives us culture and culture promotes better wellbeing in a city.
For a vibrant downtown we need affordable housing for individuals and families, people that will support the small businesses of our central core. We also need to work together to reduce and eliminate homelessness in our community. Housing challenges require creative solutions and I want to work together with our community to identify and implement those solutions.

SUPPORTING THE ARTS COMMUNITY
As an artist myself I cannot stress enough the impact a vibrant arts community has on the downtown core. The Arts scene is the cultural heartbeat of a city and having our art sector growing along with our business sector, will result in a vibrant downtown community.

SAFETY & VIBRANCY
My family and thousands of other families live, work and play in our downtown and in our parks. By revitalizing our downtown and protecting our parks we can keep our families safe and allow them to enjoy our beautiful city.
