This is our community and we need to work together. Working with the city’s new Communication Coordinator I will work hard to find better ways to get information to you.
New tools have been created to make interaction with the city easier. There is a Layton City App that you can use to pay bills online and see the event calendar for our city. A new informative electronic sign was erected at the corner of Hill Field and 2200 West.
I want to place an electronic sign in the lobby of the Layton City Office building. Upcoming events and information will be featured along videos of community activities.
The Layton Mayor is considered a part time position. I commit to being more present in the office than past mayors have been. My office will be open to you, come discuss your concerns with me as I will work in this position full time.
I want to arrange times for residents to address the mayor and council besides during the “Citizen Comments” portion of council meeting. This will be a more relaxed setting and less intimidating.
Layton is approximately 78% built out. The existing housing is 72% single family homes and 21% multifamily housing. The future growth must focus on detailed and well-planned development.
Let’s focus on creating neighborhoods were residents can walk to amenities and recreation opportunities.
Let’s focus on high quality materials and designs.
Let’s focus on the redevelopment of the Old Downtown area. I voted for the use of the city’s Redevelopment Agency (RDA) money to be used to help relocate long established businesses such as Randall Oil and Bill’s Comfort Systems. This opens the way for revitalizing the area across from the Frontrunner Station
Let’s focus on the Layton Mall and create a gathering place for our community.
Let’s focus on finding appropriate places for commercial development on the West Side, bringing desired services to the area and keeping sales tax dollars in our community.
In the past few years 911 calls have steadily increased. I advocated and voted to add fire and police positions to keep our level of service high.
I supported the Police Chief when he created a Master Officer Program to help retain well trained personal.
The city’s Fire Department recently received a 2 rating from the Insurance Services Office (ISO). Only 3% of the country’s Fire Departments have received this rating or better. This can translate to lower home insurance rates.
I will continue to support new equipment and innovations in technology that make our community safer and keep our first responders safe too.
Firsthand experience helps me understand the value of our first responders. I have ridden along with patrol officers and last year participated in the Ice Rescue Training with the Fire Department.
