RVA has beautiful city parks and green spaces in some areas. I propose we clean up overgrown areas of the city. We will plant trees and other flowers in areas where there is a shortage or no trees at all.
We must create more green space for the areas they do not have any. We will create a play area for children and a dog park.
We also must clean, fund, and revitalize all public parks that are in dire need of upkeep in the city of Richmond.
We will fix all streets that have been deemed a hazard to people and cars. We will complete this is a timely manner
We will install speedbumps and roundabouts in areas that have this need.
We fix bridges to ensure the safety of our residents.
We will add sidewalks.
We will add benches at bus routes where needed.
We will evaluate the safety of all bridges and their infrastructure and repair them all in a timely manner.
We will look into offering more green solutions for our city.
Researchers have published a new study that suggests that certain types of city trees may help lower property and violent crime rates. Along with energy conservation and storm-water reduction, scientists may soon be adding crime-fighting to the list of benefits that urban trees provide.
