I'd like to thank Hal Bailey for taking time at Safeway to answer my concerns for incorporation. How quickly he explained the lack of voice with the county and the deminished opportunity to rely on our AIA and SRV Regional Planning Commissioners. I read this site and found the answers I was looking for and better understand how all Alamo neighbors can be the direction the Alamo Incorporation Movement is looking for in planning our community prior to incorporation and immediately following.

READ "Guide to the LAFCo Process for Incorporation" and you will understand what is at stake and what can be accomplished with our own city. We can say what kind of city we want, how it will operate, and what it will cost!

If you like Alamo just the way it is or you want some new future, we need to understand that our county government is offering neither and we best be in-charge of ourselves.
