Sound Planning for the Future

By Steve Dresser

Candidate for Council Member; City of Lathrop

This information is provided by the candidate
We can not afford to start our development plans over.
I am convinced that our vision for the future of Lathrop is sound. Because of the economic climate we need to study our plans and find ways to continue development. That means working closely with the development community to identify ways to encourage growth without putting our city at risk. Our citizens have asked for traditional services and amenities found in larger cities and we need to explore every reasonable avenue to make that happen. We have already seen examples of our neighboring cities landing businesses that would have come to Lathrop. We need to plan for high density living and make proper use of infill areas to meet the needs of all of our residents. Lathrop will continue to change, how it changes is paramount to our future viability. This is not the time to stop growing but it is the time to optimize our plans and keep moving forward.
