Without safe neighborhoods all the other plans and ideas would be fruitless. Maintain current public safety and response times.
Enhance the Quality of Life
I will continue to promote greater pedestrian and bike-friendly access throughout the city. Provide greater access along the river. Expand the community oriented events throughout the City. Implement sustainable design principles where economically prudent. I will encourage a variety of housing, restaurants and entertainment choices which attracts the millennial generation.
Grow Property Values
It’s not just about the Downtown. We need to continue to foster redevelopment in our neighborhoods to transform our existing outdated housing stock to meet current market demands. I will continue to push for stringent inforcement our current blight ordinances and reduce the number of vacant storefronts. Encourage and support new development that is desired by the Citizens of Farmington.
I will continue to foster ideas to reduce the tax burden, but does not cut the heart out of the community. Control retirement and healthcare costs. Improve our aging infrastructure. It is your tax money and I understand that you demand it be well spent.
Maintain a positive business environment throughout our city, encouraging private development with existing and new property owners for redevelopment, creating new activity and growing the tax base. I will continue to look to the future and anticipate the needs to allow for well planned growth while maintaining Farmington’s character.
Farmington has been a place where the City employees have always provided quality services to the residents. I will maintain the culture where Farmington residents, customers and business owners come first.
