Campaign: What do you think should be central Arkansas' top priorities?

Trains and better public transportation

It's no joke that the United States is the land of the car. Yet consistently 'better transportation' is the most popular topic that has been reoccurring on Imagine Central Arkansas and with people I've talked to. You just have to look around, people want trains connecting our cities, and every time someone mentions it, they are getting a lot of votes: http://imaginecentralarkansas.ideascale.com/a/dtd/Trains/176635-19834 ...more »

Campaign: What do you think should be central Arkansas' top priorities?

Impact Fees - Make Sprawl Cover Costs Upfront

Institute meaningful impact fees to cover the cost of expanding city infrastructure to new greenfield developments. Low-density sprawl means higher per capita expense for police and fire coverage and more money on road, sewer, and water maintenance. What do we get for this sprawl? The inability to walk anywhere, more traffic, and no sense of community.
