Plan for Jobs and Smart Growth

We must grow intelligently. As the population in the West continues to climb, only the cities that carefully plan their resource management will prosper. Water and energy will continue to be major issues in Nevada and across the West, and we must plan carefully in order to maximize our ability to grow and prosper, while managing our resources wisely. Projects like the Truckee River Flood Project and connecting UNR with Downtown represent smart planning and will continue to provide many local jobs in the hard-hit construction industry. We must continue to move forward with big ideas like that, which serve many purposes: maximizing our current resources, planning for our future needs, and putting our local talent back to work. We can and we must create sustainable growth.
