Julie Holmer loves the Plano community. She pours herself into making it better. She's earned our trust and we need her to ensure low taxes, strong public safety and excellent parks, libraries, recreation centers. To keep Plano Strong we also have to keep Plano safe. Funding for our first responders is and must stay a top priority.
Keep Plano Strong
To Keep Plano Strong we have to keep Plano's culture thriving. We need to continue to be a professionally managed city that invests in our arts, our education, and into making Plano an inclusive city for all. We need to make sure that we continue to invest in Plano's infrastructure, which includes maintaining our roads, parks, trails, and facilities.
Plano will continue to grow and age and we need to make sure that our transportation keeps up. To ensure Plano's longevity we need to ensure that people settle near our transportation hubs. We should expand our public transportation, whether that means improving our DART access or including people movers to the college and business hubs. Plano is a wonderful city and we must strategically think of how people move in, out, and around.
One of my top priorities is making sure that the Collin Creek Mall redevelopment project continues to move along smoothly and that we, as a city, are not placing any unnecessary obstacles in the way of making that project come to fruition in a timely manner. I am firmly pro-business and I see the Collin Creek Mall development as a huge opportunity to bring jobs and opportunities into Plano. This project will also help to revitalize our downtown Plano Arts District as well as the east side of Plano.
Stay Safe Be Smart
I will commit to keep us safe and to make sure that we are doing everything in our power to protect our citizens and maintain a high standard of healthy living.
We have very little land left to develop here in Plano. We need to make sure that all developments are strategic and shaped by input from all members of our community. Any additional multifamily housing needs to be incorporated into mixed used development to allow walkability and reduce traffic impact.
