Should the current Major City Goals & Other Important Objective continue, or should the City Council consider other priorities during the next two years? (Please choose 5 priorities)
Current Major City Goal: Housing (Facilitate increased production of all housing types designed to be economically accessible to the area workforce and low and very low-income residents), Current Major City Goal: Multi-Modal Transportation (Prioritize implementation of the Bicycle Master Plan, pedestrian safety, and the Short-Range Transit Plan), Current Major City Goal: Climate Action (Implement the Climate Action Plan, carbon neutral by 2035 target, and complete a Green House Gas emissions update), Current Major City Goal: Fiscal Sustainability & Responsibility (Continue implementing the Fiscal Health Response Plan in addition to focusing on economic development and infrastructure financing), Neighborhood Wellness


Given the current fiscal constraints, new projects or services will require prioritization and potential trade-offs unless they can generate offsetting revenue. How might the City adjust current projects or services to accomplish any new priorities?
Climate change, housing, transportation, open space and access to affordable child care are all complementary aspects of neighborhood wellness/healthy communities. Small adjustments can make so much possible

I see fiscal sustainability and responsibility as being embedded in all other major city goals. I could imagine a similar cross-goal overlay for Climate Action as well at some point. It is relevant and applicable across all other goals.

Make developers pay for parking by providing an adequate number of spaces in their builds. Barring that, charge developers so they subsidize the parking district that will then be created (for example, 22 Chorro St.).

Spend city money where it will benefit the majority of people rather than focusing on special interest groups.

Current Major City Goal: Multi-Modal Transportation (Prioritize implementation of the Bicycle Master Plan, pedestrian safety, and the Short-Range Transit Plan), Open Space Preservation, Addressing Homelessness, Infrastructure Maintenance (such as roads, sidewalks, and bike paths), Other - Lower or less fees for city and county transactions. It’s embarassimg how much we are changed. ~200 for a dumpster in front of your house. This shouldn’t even be a fee. Or 900 for vrbo permits. These seem both excessive and unjustified.

shift away from projects (like the bike corridor) that only benefit a fraction of the population and refocus on things that will benefit all residents (infrastructure, housing, economic development, fiscal responsibility, parks/trails/rec programs)
