Stopping Sprawl


The threat of suburbanization is one that Ward 1 must tackle immediately. On all sides of our Ward, developers are pushing agendas that serve their own interests but not those of the existing community. 

Issues such as water rights protection and lack of affordable housing must be brought to the forefront. We need housing not only for those starting out their adult lives in our Ward, but for those who are now ready to downsize. 

Swift population growth will come to Ward 1 and developers must be tasked to work with our community for housing solutions that match local needs. It is our duty to dictate the course of our Ward’s growth while protecting our local environment. 

I will be the strong, informed voice needed to manage development in our Ward and safeguard our rural way of life.
