“We’re just here to do what we can to improve the city. Our doors are always open and we’re going to do what we can to improve this process,” said Arlevia Samuel, director of LCI.

“In this role, my goal is to commit to championing solutions that promote active transportation, promote safety, enhance access, tackle climate change, and advancing equity,” said Sandeep Aysola, director of Transportation, Traffic, and Parking.

The mayor and other city leaders say they’re excited to have these new leaders working in the community.
