We need to mend the relationship between the city and the Ada County Highway District. We must remember that we don’t represent two small conflicting groups of people; we represent the needs of our community.
- Our Bicycle Community – As your Councilwoman, I vow to research and understand our transportation needs, the best placement of bicycle lanes, and the areas of highest concern for transportation needs. As a bike commuter myself, I understand the desire to keep Boise air clean. We should make it easy for individuals who want to commute and who care about Boise air to do so.
- Partnerships – Currently, there are groups in Boise dedicated to biking and commuting that have done their research. Let’s bring in the experts and collaborate to create an effective plan!
- Public Transportation – There are incredible benefits that come with a well-developed transportation system: fewer accidents, employment accessibility, as well as economic gains that come with commuting. While it is aesthetically and technologically advancing, as your Councilwoman I will continue to understand the importance and priority-level status of improved transportation options.
