  • Work to fix existing problems of traffic, parking, pollution, and safety.
  • Consider the incremental impacts of any proposed new developments.
  • Institute measurement systems that gather valid, real-time, ongoing data to understand the effect of any choice, and monitor the effects of choices made.
  • Require transparent, objective, and resident-centered processes and services from City government.
  • Support decisions that improve our excellent schools at all levels.
  • Protect and improve our tree canopy, gardens, parks, and open spaces.
