Current Issues/Advocacy

Our definitive focus areas in terms of advocacy are, but are not limited to, increasing the development of housing (of all types), and the maintenance of our existing housing stock; providing for a sustainable water supply in all areas of the County; investing in our transportation infrastructure to support all modes of transportation, but with greater focus being given to those modes that reduce greenhouse gas emissions; promoting best practices in the administration of local government, particularly in the area of economic development and services related to business; contributing to the development of our local workforce through broad-based advocacy and specific project support; developing and maintaining relationships with local elected officials, government staff, and other community leaders; and the preservation of our existing quality of life.
