Economic Growth and Blight Elimination
We have seen a lot of growth and prosperity in Lawrence, but we also have some neighborhoods that need attention. I will focus on a new strategy for combatting abandoned and blighted residential properties is about to commence.
We must have consistent and fair economic development in all parts of our city, from Shadeland Avenue to the Fort to Oaklandon. From 42nd Street to 86th. I will encourage current and future business owners. I will seek and promote good, high paying jobs within companies that want to relocate here. Workforce development and training will occur in our new Trades District, which will help define Lawrence moving into the future.
