Vibrant Main Streets
- Authored a Complete Streets resolution that passed unanimously in March 2009 and directed staff to develop an implementation plan by early 2010.
- Initiated collaboration among City staff, Councilmember Carter III, and Mayor Coleman to develop a Parking Solutions Program on University Avenue in anticipation of the Central Corridor Light Rail line as a way to support businesses on the Avenue.
Energy Efficient Living
- Developed a Ward 4 Greenhab pilot in partnership with the Neighborhood Energy Connection and SPARC. The project includes home energy efficiency workshops and piloting energy efficiency improvements in vacant and/or foreclosed houses in Ward 4.
