City planning for intentional & smart-growth

Nearly every resident I have spoken with has expressed concerns about the impact that recent and upcoming construction projects will have on traffic and the school system. The Open Spaces Plan from 2015 and the Transportation Master Plan from 2017 consider how specific problems (such as self-driving cars) in each area could be addressed in the future, but a holistic view of the city we are building towards is not currently available to the public. I intend to work with other councillors to hire a city planner to create an integrated, long-term city plan.
