What do you believe the role of private partners should be in maintaining and improving public parks? What actions would you take to strengthen and improve public-private partnerships?

James Valadez

City Council, District 3

Public private partnerships are key to many needs of the department to
maintain, preserve and protect our green spaces. To strengthen and
improve these partnerships I think It’s critical to bring city staff and
stakeholders together to best understand the needs of both sides to
adequately allocate resources toward any given problem areas.
Understanding time tables of need and forecasting large scale capital
improvement projects to get all parties on the same page to work toward
achieving an outcome is critical.
