See what does not yet exist

The Woodside Town Council has members with legal, business and financial mindsets but would benefit from my experience as an architect and my deep interest in planning.

Our Town has a pattern of reacting to crises rather than thinking ahead. The current housing element is a good example of the Council taking a transactional approach rather than looking at what kind of future we want for the Town and making changes to support that vision.

I am used to listening to the needs and dreams of our clients, thinking about what could be, considering conflicts and limitations then bringing the vision into being.   We need a councilmember who can see what does not yet exist.

We need to plan how to accommodate the changes thrust upon us while preserving what we love about the Town.
