The residents of Healdsburg have a vision for the future of their City. I believe I know what that vision is, after knocking on over 1,500 doors and speaking with hundreds of my neighbors. They see a City where residents and tourists co-exist, where housing is at least obtainable, where children fill our schools and the fabric of our small-town flourishes.
How do we get to this somewhat idealized version of our future? An American Institute of Architects team came to Healdsburg in August to help us figure this out through their Sustainable Design Assessment Team – SDAT. I had the honor of working with a small but dedicated committee of visionaries, to help secure one of only nine such studies conducted nationwide this year. While the final report is due this month, we were given a presentation of their preliminary recommendations.
I have religiously attended Council and Commission meetings over the last five years to understand the issues and contribute to our great community. We should be meeting common goals as a Council. I believe we can build issue-based alliances on the Council that work for all perspectives in solving our toughest problems and challenges, but also put Residents First! I look forward to the honor and opportunity to serve our community.
