I'm intimately familiar with the Projects page, because I put it up fairly recently. I volunteered to handle the SCV website; it's been fun most of the time, except when it isn't (anyone who deals with web design knows what I mean).
So far Salem Community Vision mostly has been focused on saving taxpayers $40 million via a much smarter alternative to the City's over-priced $80 million police facility and Civic Center renovation proposal.
There's much more in SCV's view than just this, though. Check out:
Salem's downtown historic district already is a great place. But it can be even better, attracting more visitors, businesses, and residents. Making downtown pleasantly walkable and bikeable is key. There are many ways this can be done. We can learn from other cities where streetscaping has made their urban core a marvelous place to live, work, play, and enjoy a revitalized "Main Street."
Economic Improvement District renewal
Salem used to have an independent downtown association. It administered funds that come from assessments on downtown businesses. Now the Salem City Manager has taken control of those funds, serving as a one-person "board" who is advised by a hand-picked advisory committee. This needs to change. It is undemocratic and unproductive to have the City Manager replace an independent downtown association with herself.
Maintain and improve the Marion and Center Street bridges
The two bridges that connect West Salem with the rest of the city aren't seismically sound. Almost certainly they would be unusable when (not if) the Big One earthquake hits. Approaches to the bridges also need to be improved to improve traffic flow, in line with a 1998 Bridgehead Engineering Study. There is no need for the $400 million third bridge proposal being pushed by some elected officials and special interests. Seismic retrofitting and improvements to the current bridges can be accomplished for a fraction of the third bridge cost.
