Public Infrastructure and Transportation
Our parks, trails and streets play a
major role in improving our well-being and quality of life. Yet like many suburban
cities most of New Brighton streets don't have sidewalks for people walking,
rolling, skating, or on wheelchair to safely navigate our street systems. Our
streets should accommodate people of all ages and abilities and should not only
prioritize people that are driving. We should also pursue public transit
opportunities so people that don’t drive have alternative transportation choices
that are affordable. If elected I will focus on the following priorities:
- Work with Metro Transit and other stakeholders to improve our community’s
access to reliable and frequent public transportation.
- Review existing collision reports in our city and work with city staff to
understand traffic fatalities in the city and take steps to eliminate serious
traffic injuries and fatalities.
- Explore the viability of creating complete streets policy that prioritizes the
safety and well-being of most vulnerable users of our streets, trails, and
Improve the accessibility and condition municipal parks so they can meet
the needs of all members of our communities.
