I would like the county to focus its development and programming efforts on initiatives that add value for a broad range of existing residents, not just for particular interest groups. In particular, I'd like to see greater spending focused on bringing in new businesses and expanding existing ones to fill our office and commercial vacancies. Further, when new residential developments are approved through the site plan process, I'd like to see their monetary contributions sent to core needs identified by JFAC or the Public Spaces Master Plan rather than to non-essential amenities like public artworks and sculptures.
