Growth

One of the biggest issues facing our community is "Growth," and how it affects our infrastructure, Specifically Public Safety, Public Services and Assets. Proper planning helps eliminate growth caused problems. Fortunately, we have started a 20-year plan, as a city council member I promise to uphold the current plan and adjust when and where necessary. As we grow, we must not lose sight of our history and heritage, I am in favor of vitalizing key areas of our city to ensure proper business growth and social development. Our family friendly community in Springville has led to a robust and healthy city – I will do everything I can as a council member to keep it that way!

    Our city, continues to grow and we must meet these demands as a city council. Working together with business leaders and the community along with the council the areas that are growing must continue to develop. And, the areas that are ageing we must seek to develop as well. As a city councilmember I seek to see all parts of our city grow in all their unique and respective ways.

    I support managed smart growth. Harrisburg is a highly desirable place to call home. We can require that builders have larger lots, continue to pay legally accessed impact fees. We also can better manage our growth by requiring 1/2 acre lots, having a stronger tree ordinance and developing long range plans for growth.
