Saving what is special about the South Lakefront

We have to think about the environment around us as broadly as possible and consider the true value of everything before we destroy a damaged property or give away cherished public space. Even actions such as school closures have to be considered within the context of valuable community microclimates, irreplaceable when they succeed in providing our children with opportunity.

What I am proposing

  • Renegotiation of Obama Presidential Center, including requiring deeper economic investment and community participation, signing of a Community Benefits Agreement, and reevaluation of current siteĀ 
  • Rejection of Tiger Woods Golf Course as proposed
  • Preservation early warning system
  • Historic housing support fund

Preservation must include the planet

Preservation is also an environmental ethic, and a set of policy initiatives are in development that reflect this understanding
