This will be Rocky Anderson’s last year as Mayor of Salt Lake City. In this year, he has a team that is working on 108 goals he has set for the remainder of his tenure. I don’t agree with some of them, for example mandating helmets for bicyclists and motorcyclists (I am opposed to the government making mandates for my own personal self). However, I like a lot of his goals. Here are some that I like (not all inclusive):
Require yearly courtesy training for all police officers.
Ban idling (except in traffic) for government vehicles and, possibly, all cars in the city.
Liquor law reform to eliminate private-club memberships
Develop Master Plan for segregated bike lanes
Close off traffic on certain streets to allow bicycling across town – Public campaign and celebrations
Lobby for state incentives for consumers to utilize alternative energy
Educate employers about tax incentives for employees to ride public transportation
Develop plan to convert all City vehicles to alternative fuels or high-efficiency vehicles
All fluorescents or LED in all City buildings. No incandescent bulbs, including holiday lighting
