Vacaville is a family town and that requires affordable housing for young families and seniors. The median housing price sits at $445,000 while the median Vacaville wage is $74,000. There is a huge disconnect between what Vacaville families can afford and what our city has been producing. We can do better.
Did you know the average Vacaville resident has a 27 mile commute to work.That one third of Vacaville jobs are also in the retail and service sector. There is nothing wrong with these types of businesses but they often don’t afford their workers a wage that allows for home ownership or to fully support their family. We need good local jobs!
The City of Vacaville is in murky financial waters. Out of 460 California cities Vacaville ranks in the bottom 40 for fiscal health especially in relation to the city’s debts and unfunded liabilities. This is unacceptable. City leaders need to make our fiscal health a major priority and stop blaming our fiscal situation on the financial crash of 2007.
Did you know Vacaville’s rate of violent crime is 1/2 the State average? Did you know our fire department responds to over 10,000 calls per year or close to 30 per day? Vacaville is a safe community. We can walk the streets at night, take our kids to the park and enjoy a relatively low crime rate because of our amazing city staff.
Nolan understands that a city needs to grow to thrive. That growth has to be smart and well planned. Over the last decade Vacaville has continued to build new housing developments that lack parks, schools and recreational facilities for our growing families. Every child deserves a park they can play in, a school they can walk to, nearby public safety and retail to support their family!
