I will work to move the timeline forward on many crucial connector road projects to alleviate the traffic issues. I have good working relationships with elected officials on the County and State level which will enable me to effectively advocate for our city.
I am very much a supporter of increased economic development in our city, but my goals are specific. I am not interested in pursuing factories that will pollute our air and ruin our night skies. Instead, we should pursue companies that will provide quality jobs without polluting or detracting from our sense of community. I recommend we meet as a council with staff, the economic development board and other stakeholders to evaluate what is working with our approach to attracting businesses and how we can improve.
We chose to raise our family here in Eagle Mountain for several reasons including the amazing sense of community, the family friendly atmosphere, trails, and the beautiful night skies. I want our city to be vibrant and diverse, while never losing our sense of community. To achieve this, we need balanced growth. Development needs to make sense, as well, so that traffic flows better and widely different uses are not placed side by side and adequate buffering is in place.
