  • Improved community and police relations and created safer neighborhoods
  • Partnered with local businesses to offer paid summer internships and create more employment opportunities for our youth
  • Added sustainable youth programming and expanded access to youth sports
  • Revitalized our parks, increased trails and connections, and leveraged outside funding and grants to invest in our park system
