Next Great City : 10 Actions

The Next Great City Initiative recommends ten near-term, achievable actions to provide renewed energy and strength to our neighborhoods and city

In forming these recommendations, we were guided by the following criteria. Each of the recommended actions can be completed within the new mayor's term.

Each is within the city's authority.

Each is affordable either revenue neutral or able to be funded through an identified source that can cover key costs.

Each of these actions will create positive changes that people will be able to see and feel in their own neighborhoods.

And each of these ten actions was identified through months of discussion with hundreds of residents, businesses, and community and nonprofit leaders across the city.

By adopting the Next Great City agenda, the new mayor, working with City Council, will make every neighborhood better, maintain and improve the city's infrastructure and assets, and attract new investment, jobs, and people.
