What Would You Improve in San Rafael in 2013?

If you could make a New Year's resolution for our city, what would it be?

More than 45 percent of Americans make a resolution every year, according to statisticbrain.com. Some people vow to live a healthier lifestyle, others promise to spend more time with family and many say they will try to save money.

As millions of Americans make resolutions to improve their lives, what could we do right here in San Rafael to make it an even better place to live? Let's make a resolution to accomplish something together.

Maybe you're thinking about business development and ways to bring people to our shops. Maybe you're thinking about ways to reduce crime —  monitoring a school campus or participating in a Neighborhood Watch program. 

Those are just starter ideas. What is on your wish list? What is one thing you would improve for the community in 2013? Do you think it's achievable?

To rid the city of the aggressive drug addicted homeless and the gang influence in San Rafael. To make our City into a better place and stop letting the negative influence take over because we might be deemed politically incorrect. Take back our City San Rafael no matter who's feelings are hurt.

My sentiments exactly, MJ.

Investigate Mayor Phillips for having deeper financial ties to the San Rafael Airport than he admitted to the city's attorney.

I wish they'd repave my street--the lower section of Bungalow off Woodland!

I'd like a lane dividing line painted on Woodland that would encourage drivers of big SUVs and such not to drive straight down the middle of the street, leaving no room for other vehicles. I'd also like to see the second from the rightmost southbound lane at Hetherton and 2nd painted to allow both right turns and straight thru traffic. The right-turn lane gets very backed up. I'd like to see a homeless shelter so it wasn't left up to local churches to house the homeless in cold weather.

end any/all taxpayer funded retirement benefits for any/all City of SR employees. Set up an IRA or 401K program that the employees can elect to participate in or not, their decision. Let OUR employees plan for their retirement just like we do and fund it themselves just like we do.
