Our Priorities

Smart Thoughtful Development

For too long, Novi leaders have let developers decide what’s best for our city, leaving us with both overdevelopment and abandoned storefronts. We are advocating for a Master Plan that puts citizens’ needs at the forefront, where development is used strategically to enhance our amenities while preserving Novi’s character and small-town feel. We will also repurpose vacant spaces wherever possible to increase curb appeal while bringing valued services and jobs to our community.

Municipal Broadband Access

With more of our residents working and schooling from home these days, the internet is no longer a luxury—it’s a necessity in our ever-connected society. We believe that distributing fast, high-quality internet as a municipal provider promotes both equitable access and cost savings for our community. It’s an investment that helps our students learn, our citizens apply for jobs or see a doctor, and our small businesses establish themselves, and it will have tangible benefits across Novi.

Infrastructure

Our infrastructure is the bedrock of our community, affecting everything from our residents’ quality of life to our economy. Maintaining our infrastructure is critical to securing our community’s future by ensuring we can meet the demands of residents and local businesses. Whether we’re fixing our roads, updating our sewers and water mains, or adding new walking paths, we’re investing in Novi’s ability to provide the amenities and lifestyle we all appreciate.

Sustainability

Protecting our environment and combating climate change is everyone’s responsibility, and city leaders play an important role in shaping our community’s approach to sustainability. We are committed to promoting sustainable operations across our city, from government offices to infrastructure enhancements or new developments. Together, we can reduce Novi’s environmental impact and create a city that inspires citizens to live a greener lifestyle.

Parks and Walkability

Parks, walking paths, and green spaces enhance the quality of life for residents of all ages. Our plan for Novi includes maintaining and expanding the outdoor amenities that make our neighborhoods enjoyable and improve our collective well-being.

Inclusivity

Novi’s diversity is more than just a feature of the community, it’s a value that we should celebrate and protect as residents and city leaders. We will work to ensure Novi is a safe, welcoming community with equal opportunity for all.

Help for Seniors

We believe in creating a community that residents can spend a lifetime in, and that includes offering resources for people to age-in-place or care for aging parents. From transportation options to community activities, we envision a Novi designed to help everyone thrive.
