  1. Build some new quality restaurants here in Brighton. It would be great not to travel to Thornton, Arvada, Denver etc. just to eat a nice dinner.

    See if Brighton can get any new business like: P.F. Chang's, Texas Roadhouse, Hacienda Colorado, California Pizza Kitchen Etc. would be great to eat local.
