Promises about Urban on Krise-O-Meter
"As mayor, I will encourage effective and influential neighborhood associations by funding the Neighborhood Partnership Grants program."
"As mayor, I will ... support staff and treating our Codes Compliance Assistance Department as a budget priority. As we continue to emerge from the economic downturn and related budget cuts, we must look to restore funding to the areas that were hit the hardest, and that includes Codes."
"We must expedite the demolition of condemned homes in order to reduce blight and make our neighborhoods safer."
"My goal is for each neighborhood or area to have its own vibe, to be its own destination. Visually appealing signage at neighborhood entrances and wayfaring signage in populated areas is an easy first step and a resource for both residents and visitors."
