I have 5 Pillars of renewal that I would like to implement for our city
Renewal for Downtown
Rezone the Little Gaetz area into a walking mall to create a destination for the citizens of Red Deer and beyond. This area can be expanded in the future to include other areas like the Cenotaph Park, Capstone and Alexander Way.
Transportation Audit (Year One)
Establish a 311 call centre to handle problems; investigate traffic flow within the city; establish a lottery system for plowing service after arterial roads are done.
City Charter for Red Deer (Year Two)
Join the alliance of Alberta cities to negotiate with the province to keep tax money in Red Deer for our needs first; can not rely on current system to meet growth in health and education for our area.
Red Deer Cultural Growth (Year Three)
Start a discussion with different cultural groups within Red Deer to fund a major capital project, like a concert hall, to replace the Memorial Centre or a 50 metre pool.
Health and Welfare Services (Ongoing)
Policing, addictions and homelessness are not stand alone problems but strongly interconnected. We need to build lasting ties of communication, commitment and care for all citizens when they need physical or mental health care. There needs to be a mental health trauma intake centre at the Hosptial.
