I have several priorities on my platform one of which is increasing our economic tax base. This means building larger buildings in key areas of our city. The two run down strip malls on 37th /Stinson and 40th/ Central are prime spots. Strip malls do not bring in a significant amount in taxes, larger buildings do. If we placed larger buildings, four to six stories, in these two areas, they could help carry more of the tax burden for our city.
