Greg Holland for Waldport Mayor platform:
* Form community partnerships like we have on the concrete planter project (Alsea Bay Center for the Arts, Chamber, and City) to save taxpayer money and accomplish needed improvements to Waldport.
* Open Alsea Bay Center for the Arts in Waldport for all ages to provide music, dance, performance, visual art, classes and more.
* Actual work on the Open Space project (old High School site) which will have a soccer field, playground, gazebo, picnic tables, open space, and more.
* A littering project. Placement of trash cans at key points to alleviate trash we see blowing around in downtown.
* Continue seeking Safe Routes to Schools grants and other funding to finally get sidewalks on Crestline to the school.
* The City Council just approved purchasing a software package I have long advocated that will ensure we are getting every dollar in transient tax and business licenses from short term vacation rentals. We will stay on top of them and I will push to adopt any needed ordinances as to noise, trash, or parking.
* Another project I would like to see done, but it is massively expensive, is to run a sewer line to the Waldport Industrial Park. If we could ever pull it off, I have no doubt it could bring better-paying jobs to Waldport.
* Expensive but needed. One flashing light crosswalk on both 101 and 34.
* There are projects that the City is going to be undertaking such as replacing your ancient water meters. Some date back to the 1960s.
* Find a new home for the Heritage Museum so they have more foot traffic. Seek grant funding so its records can be digitalized so persons can also access them from the internet.
As your Mayor, in a post-COVID world, I promise to remain active as I have been in the community. I’ll be at your fundraisers, I’ll check in on your meetings. I did this as a city councilor before the pandemic.
I’ll always remember that I represent you when I attend state and county meetings.
Thank you for your attention,
