Below are some of the “Rockstar” ideas we’ve heard at the previous two meetings:

  • Establish a public transportation system for both old and young people with routes going down main streets in a circuit.
  • Add a community garden near the Walton Boulevard neighborhoods.
  • Assist me with overcoming the fear of technology (e.g., cellphones and internet).
  • Add more exercise equipment at the Community Center.
  • Need help getting my trash cans from the garage to the street.
  • Add sidewalks in residential subdivisions and main streets.
  • Add a pathway from Joslyn Road to Great Lakes Crossing Outlets.
  • Provide more convenient transportation with routine schedules and routes.
  • Install street and traffic lights at half-way points in major streets for safety.
  • Create events that encourage me to invite my friends to attend as a group.
  • Add a gondola transportation system to main destinations.
  • Allow mother-in-law cottages or separate living spaces on the same property.
