Prevey: Focus on quality-of-life issues


“We’re hoping it brings some positive effect on the neighborhood ... (but) with larger developments there tends to be problems that are brought along with it,” Prevey said. “... We want to make sure the natives stay.”

Keeping the lines of communication open with residents is also a priority, Prevey said.

“I’m a pretty approachable person,” he said. “I’m willing to work with people, no matter what their background (or) situation is. I’m open to all types of people.”
