I fully support individual liberties, property rights, and repealing burdensome regulations and codes that are driving away jobs.

In any development, we must take into consideration the short-term and long-term impact a project will have on drainage, roads, the environment, traffic, and other areas that can affect our community. My administration will strive to approve developments that meet the needs of our current residents without compromising the ability of future residents to meet their developmental needs.

In 2014, the community recognized in the comprehensive plan that development pressures were focusing where land was cheapest and most available—which is often where land is lowest and more prone to flooding. Many of these patterns bore out, unfortunately, in 2016. Recognizing these pressures, in the Unified Development Code (often called the UDC), the council provided additional subdivision and zoning rules to make it easier for developers to take on infill projects—where the infrastructure is already in place and adequate. The UDC also strengthened drainage requirements for new developments. This is a start.
