What are other ways in which you would like to see the City address its budget challenges?
I think Concord needs to focus on making the community safe and improve the schools. This will help increase property values which in turn will generate revenue and attract more business to the area. We need to enhance and protect the resources we already have. Our downtown area is great and we have multiple nice parks but those are over shadowed by the homeless population and crime rates.

Set up brainstorming sessions with interested residents. It can be made to be fun and might come up with some great ideas. It would also educate those in the sessions about city finances. The understanding going in is that the ideas won't necessarily be implemented.

Attract businesses and redevelop vacant or run down properties to increase revenues from sales tax. For example, the vacant properties along East St are a blight and lost revenue streams. The City also needs to stop making things difficult for businesses that have shown an interest in moving to the City such as In N Out that is now in Pleasant Hill, Total Wine that is now in Pleasant Hill, and Chick-fil-A that wants to move into the old Lin's Buffet building on Willow Pass Road.
