On the Issues
The initial goal of the Twinsburg Community Improvement Corporation (TCIC) is to redevelop the southeast quadrant of the downtown area. That project would promote a 50/50 division between residential (townhomes along Tinker’s Creek) and small businesses and restaurants. The ultimate goal would be to have a main street connecting Rt. 82 and Creekside. In my opinion, this redevelopment would preserve the heritage and small town feel of Twinsburg and encourage reinvestment in the buildings around the square and create a thriving retail district that can retain locally owned businesses. In addition, I will be promoting the connectivity of our vast trail system in the northern part of town to the downtown area. I believe this project will economically benefit Twinsburg, create multiple venues for family and city-wide events and enhance our ability to attract and retain businesses. As this project develops, I will be promoting town hall meetings to assist the city in gathering resident feedback and comments. Twinsburg has always been a town that embraces its heritage while looking towards the future and adapting to change and growth. My plans as Mayor would align with that goal; to preserve Twinsburg’s heritage and keep the small town feel alive.
