There are a number of priorities coming up and how they are handled is as important as the projects themselves. The replacement of the Salmon River bridge, promoting economic development, the downtown community campus and most of the proposed short-term strategic plan projects are all at the top of my list.
Real collaboration and transparent decision-making in investing our tax dollars is needed. Factual communication, open public data, neighbourhood associations that would provide a local voice to council and a minimal use of the alternate approval process are good starts.
