100 Resilient Cities
Future planning and smart growth involves resiliency planning. Join me in thinking through how Englewood can become a Resilient City capable of sustaining unanticipated catastrophes.
A Healthy Englewood
Wondering what you can do today to support a healthy Englewood? Plogging! Take your dog for a walk, just go for a stroll yourself, go for a jog and while doing so, being a few empty bags and pick up trash you see along the way. It's that easy!
Smart Transportation Englewood
I am committed to ensuring Colorado increases transportation funding, empowering local and regional leaders, and ensuring accountability and transparency. What would you think if Englewood offered an extension to our urban bike trails with increased economic benefits? Safe pedestrian paths throughout the city allow for more exercise, support for the ULI Healthy Corridor project, boost our economy and reduce the need to drive our cars. Read what some other cities are doing and let me know your thoughts.
Water Now, Water Forever
Conserving water doesn't mean using less water; It means wasting less water! Making Englewood a Smart City can be as easy as conserving water at home and at work. Read about some initiatives and future innovation that supports our ability to always have drinking water come what may. I'm currently researching initiatives for our city given 85% of water infrastructure spending occurs at the local level. For now, here are some ideas for you!
The Little Free Pantry
The Little Free Pantry is a grassroots, crowdsourced solution to immediate and local need. Whether a need for food or a need to give, the Little Free Pantry facilitates neighbors helping neighbors, building community. The Sacred Grace (just behind The Gothic on Acoma) hosts a pantry of toiletries for those in need. Most of us have soaps, shampoos, lotion, and other items from hotel stays. Consider donating them to our homeless community by contacting me for a pickup or by dropping them off at The Sacred Grace 3220 S Acoma St Englewood CO.
Thank you for the opportunity to serve!
