Post a New Topic

What is your focus for the New Year?

Original post made by Ralph N. Shirlet, another community, on Dec 28, 2009

Dear Dolores,

Corridor neighborhoods asked this question, "What is your focus for the New Year?" and received a volume of thoughtful responses. It might be interesting to ask your constant commentators for their focus for 2010 and see how broadly topics are displayed.

2010 will likely be a highly divisive, political year and should draw well-divided points of view from the conservative and liberal minorities that are among our politically moderate majority.

2010 will need to have very specific economic interest as USAmerica continues its progress in a global economy. Our corridor will be asked to join such global economic performance so that jobs can return.

2010 will need to have community as a local and regional interest so the factions within our region can be brought to our regional community as a whole. Issues of economic development, infrastructure, transportation, and neighborhood character are dependent on such consideration.

So, Dolores, what are your readers' thoughts?

Dear Dolores and EXPRESS Readers,

Your neighbors from Saranap to Diablo Road have offered some projects for 2010 discussions:

1) North Danville business district rejuvenation and new anchor stores
2) Alamo business district "revival" and new anchor stores
3) Tice Valley business district rejuvenation and Safeway expansion
4) Crushed rock pathways along major roads in Alamo
5) Infrastructure enhancements including completed sewer systems
6) Municipal wifi throughout the corridor

Neighbors considered the national, state and local issues to be:

5) Economic development and diversity for job growth
6) Political voice and the containment of elected officials' powers.
7) Governments impact of neighborhoods' character and neighbors' freedom.

These discussions continue on e-exchanges in our corridor and neighbors invite EXPRESS readers to express themselves.


Don't miss out on the discussion!
