Expand Parking, Relieve Traffic, and Enhance Retail.

Overall we need to manage and plan for the growth that's clearly happening- so that we can preserve the Green nature of our town and maintain Media's vibrant small town spirit instead of feeling like an overcrowded town. Please check out my videos and social media for more information. See you around!

1. Work to reopen the 3rd Street Bridge. We have to work to reopen this critical piece of infrastructure that will help provide another option for those who wish to enter or exit Media Borough.

2. We need parking and traffic solutions in our town. I want to help bring new ideas to expand parking options in the Borough, whether it would be growing our parking facilities or finding new solutions with parking enforcement. Also, in terms of traffic solutions we must look into options that would allow for easier traffic flows on our major roads in the Borough.

3. We have to look at our storefronts in Media and create solutions that help maintain our storefronts on State, Front, Jackson, Olive, Orange and other streets. Working with our small businesses and restaurants will be a major point moving forward to help our storefronts remains strong and exciting, and continue to attract more people to visit our town.
Continue to plan and invest in improved public spaces across the Borough, starting with the completion of the park at Fifth and Broomall Streets and the upcoming Open Space Plan, followed by the implementation of the plan's findings.

Ensure that the final design for the new Delaware County office building on Orange Street is appropriate for the community while also serving the County's long-term needs. It needs to be attractive, pedestrian friendly and sympathetic to the neighborhood, but also allow for future growth of the county staff.

Work with the Fire Department to plan for and to prepare the community for a future without enough volunteer fire fighters. This state-wide problem has been a discussion item for the Fire Company and the Council for some time, and although Media still has a healthy Company, we need to plan now, before the crisis hits us too.
