Tri-Valley mayors optimistic about growth

Original post made on Oct 31, 2013

Partnerships -- with businesses, with residents and with each other -- were the common themes for all five city leaders at the Tri-Valley Mayors Summit, held Wednesday at Bridges Golf Club in San Ramon. Danville Mayor Newell Arnerich said Danville can only expect to add about 30 residents a year, so it's focusing its efforts on maintaining its downtown.

Wow, what an extraordinary contradictory comment from Arnerich. "Danville can expect to add about 30 residents per year". RUkidding ? What about all those K&B town homes, the Diablo Rd. Summer Hill development Mr. Mayor ? Maybe he means 30 residents per housing unit. Yeah, that must be it....... And then there's the issue of your concern about TRAFFIC Mr. Mayor, RUkidding....Danville residents already know your position on this rather important matter.

All mayors talked about was expansion and development. So are they really concerned about traffic? I doubt it. They are concerned about revenue to the town's coffers. How do you keep a small town atmosphere as mayor of Pleasanton said when they continue to build new buildings, town centers and housing? Like all politicians they never really tell you what they are thinking only what you want to hear. Actions speak louder than words.
