Progress in Infrastructure

I visited every neighborhood in the 3rd District during my 2014 campaign. When I first assumed office it became very clear that the City’s infrastructure was a problem.  Unfortunately, maintenance had been deferred and our community was literally crumblingWith the passage of Measure A and an overall commitment of the City Council we have made more infrastructure improvements in 3 1/2 years that we did in the past 30 years combined.

  • By the end of my first term we will have repaired
  • 32 miles of new streets (more than ever before)
  • Hundreds of blocks of new sidewalks
  • Major parking and traffic safety improvements in congested areas like Ocean Boulevard and Broadway have been made enabling a smoother and safer flow of traffic making these streets feel more like the residential neighborhoods they are than the major highways they have been treated like for years.
  • Median Enhancements on 2nd Street in Belmont Shore, on Bellflower Blvd. in Alamitos Heights, and on Broadway in Belmont Heights have been constructed and enhanced these streets as well as providing water-saving landscaping and irrigation.
  • Parking lots throughout Belmont Shore have been upgraded adding additional parking spaces, and the first Electric Charging stations in Belmont Shore.
  • Reconstruction of beach parking lots to create more parking spaces and eliminate flooding by rebuilding the drainage systems to eliminate trash from the parking lot from getting into the ocean.
  • A new dock, refaced building and updated parking is underway Leeway Sailing Center.
  • Phase I of the Naples Canal is complete and Phase II is underway.
  • Approval from the City Council has paved the way for the new world class Belmont Aquatics Center and is now under review by the California Coastal Commission.

Major investments in our community for more safety, improved function, and beautification.
