Cindy SilvaAccomplishments & Focus

 

As a member of the current City Council, I am proud of our recent accomplishments but I also know there is hard work ahead.

 

Among our accomplishments, we have:

  • Built the All Abilities Playground at Heather Farm and the new pool and splash playground at Larkey Park – using dedicated park funding and significant community donations

  • Set aside a “down payment” of $14 million for unfunded pension liabilities

  • Invested new State transportation funding in long-overdue road rehabilitation work

  • Created more downtown parking through an attendant-assisted parking program

  • Partnered to address the homelessness crisis with the County, Concord and local non-profits

  • Supported the building of some 200 units of affordable housing

  • Implemented numerous sustainability programs – joining Marin Clean Energy, installing solar arrays in various parking lots, adding EV charging stations, and providing solar-powered recycling and trash compactors downtown

  • Celebrated the rebuilding of Broadway Plaza, a $250 million project, and the rejuvenation of neighborhood shopping centers such as Encina Grande and Rossmoor Shopping Center

     

As this year progresses, I am focused on these City Council priorities:

  • Addressing the infrastructure needs of four highly used community facilities (Civic Park Community/Senior Center, Heather Farm Community Center, Shadelands Arts Center, and Clarke Swim Center)

  • Tackling the continuing challenge of homelessness

  • Improving the availability and affordability of housing

  • Updating our Economic Development Strategic Plan

  • Enhancing the Climate Action Plan

     

And, I remain committed to these important community issues:

  • Improving our local roads through the availability of additional gas tax funds — and protecting these funds from state take-aways

  • Tackling the growing challenge of unfunded pension costs

  • Adopting a balanced budget for 2018-2020

  • Planning for Community Service Day 2018, scheduled for
    Saturday, October 13
