It’s time to be proactive, so in five, ten, and even thirty years from now we’re not saying “I wish we would have,” but “I’m so glad we did!”

Plan With Vision:

We must invest back into our city  

A) Downtown Infill and Redevelopment - actively encourage investment in our downtown core  

B) Main Street Redevelopment - It’s time to reclaim our downtown! Encourage ordinances that rejuvenate downtown  

C) Civic Spaces - creating community gathering areas

Intelligent Growth:

Diligently and carefully attend to the City’s annexation plan. We only have one chance to get it right!  

A) Potential Annexations - present unique opportunities and challenges. We must work with future petitioners to incorporate the community’s values expressed in the Envision Heber 2050 process  

B) Cluster Developments - examine possible PUD ordinances to cluster future development around preserved open and green spaces 

Master Transportation Plan  

A) Roads - start planning now for anticipated future road needs  

B) Public Transportation - start investigating possible public transit opportunities, like a bus service to Park City and/or Utah County  

C) Heber Valley Parkway - work with UDOT and the public to encourage responsible, context-sensitive development of the bypass. This is the other side of the coin from reinvigorating our Main Street  

D) Heber City Airport - follow through the Master Plan process without encouraging expansion. I do not support inviting larger jets into Heber, nor do I support an increase in air traffic. 

Agriculture & Housing

A) Agriculture & Open Lands Conservation: actively work with the Wasatch Open Lands Board to identify and preserve open lands  

B) Housing Diversity & Ownership Options  

C) Support those who support us: Encourage developers to provide housing options that allow for home ownership at multiple income levels. Police officers, teachers, and the people who serve our citizens should be able to live here too!  

D) Moderate Income Housing Plan: Continue work on the City’s Moderate Income Housing Plan to comply with Senate Bill 34 

Parks & Trails A) Create a system of trails that is connected, focus on completion of the Trails Master Plan B) Improve the park system C) Coordinate with Wasatch County to explore options to create a Lake-to-Lake trail (connecting Jordanelle and Deer Creek reservoirs)
