Meaningful Infrastructure

Idea Category: Jobs and Entrepreneurship, Smart Government


Small industrial towns have seen manufacturing jobs leave and have lacked the ability to attract millennial workers to their communities who will pay into the tax system.


Our plan addresses the issues keeping millennials away from suburban communities, and provides the infrastructure necessary to provide jobs, without burdening taxpayers. Downingtown is turning a debilitated mill site into an Amtrak and regional rail station connected to NYC, Philadelphia, and DC which will be maintained in large part with private dollars that includes walking trail networks & public bridges. By revising zoning laws, we are able to have the train station built along with trails and bridges without tax incentives or investing any municipal money.
