Protect our Natural Resources

By striving for smart growth that will preserve our greenways and reduce pollution, we are preparing for the future. Climate challenges and sea level rise must be addressed in every development code and plan. Impacts of new development on the environment, traffic, stability of neighborhoods, infrastructure and the economy must be seriously considered, particularly for industrial and multi-family projects. Housing, jobs, and transportation are best situated when they are grouped together and complement one another. Smart growth allows us to preserve the precious green space we have and increase it to accommodate storm water treatment and recreational opportunities for all areas of the county.
