Let's Prioritize Working Families

I think the City Council should focus on issues that affect the quality of life for working families in Concord. Families are the foundation for Concord, and quality of life means thriving communities.

For example, development decisions can prioritize project viability for the developer, or it can prioritize improvements that have a positive impact on current residents. Sometimes these can be done at the same time, but that takes careful work. 

As the naval weapons station project proceeds, new housing will mean traffic impacts on existing roadways. Project decisions should therefore place a high priority on the needs of current working families.
