On Wednesday, May 22nd, Mayor Steve Bach addressed the Association of General Contractors Breakfast with the Board at the Olympic Training Center. During his remarks, the Mayor focused on his three main goals for the City: Jobs, Transforming City Government, and Building Community.
Mayor Bach stressed that the key to creating an environment to attract jobs is to become the most business friendly City in the nation. The best way to accomplish this is to change from a regulatory culture to a customer service culture that recognizes that citizens are the City’s best customer and employer. Cutting down fees and response time for routine construction and land use business is another critical effort to transform the way City Government operates.
The Mayor also indicated that special focus would be paid to revitalizing four areas critical to building community in our City: Downtown, the UCCS-Nevada corridor, South Academy, and the Colorado Springs Airport.
