Form-based zoning codes.
A mayor that is not influenced by big money and is truly interested in the betterment of the city and the community he/she serves
I think it takes three parts. A viable mayoral challenger, a courageous (or at least not terrified) political class, and an energized and educated electorate in the city. I've been reading Slay's campaign reports, and most of the people giving him money can't vote for him - the don't live in the city. Money can't buy votes (well ....) but it can terrify challengers. It has.
Green lights for the Laurel, Alexa and Arcade.
200,000 people and the city jobs to support them.
Comprehensive planning, zoning and economic development and a mayor that listens to his advisors in each discipline.
For Pyramid Construction to return to continue its great work.
A real mayor. Not Irene Smith or Maida Coleman or Francis Slay, but a hard worker who is smart and democratic.
To become part of Illinois.
It's last hope: County-City merger.
A new mayor. My pick is Maida Coleman.
People who see it's value.
Citizens who realize its true value and importance and who are no longer content to accept mediocrity.
