"IT'S TIME WE GET BASIC CITY SERVICES DONE RIGHT. WE CAN BUILD A BETTER STREET.
RJ's Pathway to the Future
CITY SERVICES & ROADS PLAN
City services from trash pickup to snow removal to sidewalk repair should be distributed across Omaha equitably. You should always count on your trash getting picked up and your snow being removed effectively and efficiently.
The streets crisis has cost the city hundreds of millions of dollars, and an Omaha-World Herald analysis revealed more needs to be done. Only 125 miles of streets are resurfaced every year according to the OWH, half of what is needed. In 2015 the World Herald reported that roads were worsening. I will enforce more equitable cost-sharing solutions that are innovative, and does not increase tax burdens of the citizens of Omaha and fixes our streets for good.
As mayor I will:
Build better streets by implementing cost-friendly solutions to fixing deteriorating roads that use sustainable and long lasting concrete to build better streets
Increase traffic flow and critical infrastructure by reorienting the overall budget to divert wasteful spending into innovative technology
Increase the number of recycling centers across Omaha
Initiate a 4 year plan to repair and fill in gaps of sidewalks on a consistent basis to improve city walkability and to minimize the Omahans walking in streets
Ensure city services are distributed equitably across Omaha
Employ best available technology for snow removal to minimize disruption for businesses, pedestrians, and emergency vehicles
Ensure that sustainability best practices are incorporated into all major roads projects moving forward
