- Using Natural Resource and water/wastewater mapping to inform land use and identify areas appropriate for new housing, available by November 2023

- Ensuring our development regulations and review procedures are clear, predictable, sensible and timely to increase the rate of new dwelling unit construction to goal of 30 new housing units per year starting in 2024

- Investing in community infrastructure critical to support infill and denser development in compact mixed-use centers. Completing the first community wastewater project by 2028.
