As Mark Bliss recently reported, many ideas have been shared and submitted already, “People have suggested things such as tiny rent-to-own houses to boardwalks to roundabouts and better street lighting. This will be the last public session to attend; consider going out, even if you don’t have an idea to share. The city is making some of its planners and officials accessible to the public. It’s a good opportunity to say hello, and shake hands with some of the people who work behind the scenes in city government.”

“As an early retiree, it would be WONDERFUL to have other senior living areas… They are great assets to the community, but there is a need for smaller self-owned single level houses in senior neighborhoods.”

“Engage service groups and neighborhood committees along with grants for implementation. Infrastructure repairs and expansion must continue for growth.”

“I’d like more/better bike paths. The trail is amazing, I’d love to see long term plans for expansion. Multi-use plan for upgrading the riverfront would be great. I love the idea of mini parks as well.”

Access to affordable, quality housing for all. Expanded community resources, programs, support services.”
