2019 City Council Priorities
At their annual retreat on Feb. 2, the City Council adopted four priorities for 2019 to focus their work for the year. They include:
- Climate Change
- Grade Separation (choose preferred alternative by end of the year)
- Traffic and Transportation
- Fiscal Sustainability
These four priorities were chosen from a list of 11 that were submitted by council members that included pursuing a business tax, and reconstructing Cubberley Community Center.
Grade separation and transportation are both carry-overs from the 2018 Council Priorities, while climate change and fiscal sustainability are new calls for increased civic responsibility surrounding these issues.
Among the Council ideas proposed to address transportation and traffic issues were expanding the City’s shuttle program and promoting alternatives to solo driving.
