ISSUES of IMPORTANCE
INTEGRATION of NEIGHBORHOODS and HISTORIC DOWNTOWN
I want to make Black Diamond one of the best small towns in Washington. We need pedestrian-prioritized throughways into downtown Black Diamond, while also providing designated parking spaces. By highlighting the rich history of Black Diamond, I believe we can and should have a city ‘hub’ with local merchants, the Historical Depot Museum, and Black Diamond Elementary School serving as anchors. I would look to learn as much as I can from similar-sized cities, as they embraced their historical values while providing avenues for future growth.
