- Eliminate the fence at the southern end of Hill Street - Institute local tax breaks for civil servant homeowners: police, firefighters, teachers, and nurses - to encourage long-term residential investment - See if old town businesses would support a late bus running between late night locations, the metro, and GMU

-develop a City initiative to legislate and lobby for elimination of assault weapons and large amunitions clips in our community. -address gun issues at manufacturing level. -avoid distracting issues like "arming teachers"-issues that cause a lot of controversy and serve to dilute focus.

Improve pedestrian safety and increase walkways divided from heavy traffic.Having lived in a number of places, including Los Angeles, Fairfax City is by far the most pedestrian unfriendly place I have ever walked!

Make Fairfax City roads and shopping centers more bike-friendly faster

Find ways to encourage Mason students and faculty to eat and shop in downtown. Discounts and promotions will help. Visible bike racks or a bike station would also be very helpful, particularly given Mason's new bike share program. Food is better and cheaper in Fairfax City than at Mason--there should be far more students and faculty downtown for lunch and in the evenings.

More funding to our schools so that class sizes can be reduced and building security improved. Re-development for the Safeway Shopping Center and the Route 50 itinerant motels.
