Sandy's Priorities for Lakeway
- Develop a comprehensive plan.
Lakeway has announced the formation of a steering committee to update the city’s Comprehensive Plan. I feel strongly that there needs to be a balance between business development and quality of life attributes (parks, trails, green space). Given that I have successfully managed growth and transition for a $6B supply chain and previously served as your Councilwoman, I have already volunteered to serve on this committee.
- Address traffic concerns.
Working with Capital Area Metropolitan Planning Organization (CAMPO), Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) and our surrounding cities is the key. I previously served on the Capital Area Council of Governments (CAPCOG) and I understand how this process works. Gaining consensus and securing funding are critical.
Support growth and development.
Enhance our current processes to better serve Lakeway residents and new businesses. As a Process Engineer I have been trained to identify inefficiencies. I will meet with both business owners and residents to learn about their development experiences, then work to address their concerns in order to develop a plan for improvement.
Encourage Civic Engagement.
The City of Lakeway has thrived on community involvement and volunteerism. We need more participation from the younger generation. I will work with our community organizations to develop the next generation of volunteers and leaders.
I welcome the opportunity to discuss these priorities and my approach to addressing each, as well as the many other facets of our great city.
