Dear Editor,

With less than a quarter of the eligible votes counted, Measure F appears to be headed for majority approval. Such a result invites the next step for Alamo residents to provide their approval of current efforts and/or the future efforts they wish to see for parks and recreation programs in Alamo.

Let’s suggest that Alamo region residents provide a self-survey of their desires reported as protecting open space and ridgeline, developing more school-based recreation and exercise facilities, native planting along walkways and pathways on our major roads including covered drainage, and any and all support for the current formal parks and programs. Treat such a survey as if it were a Streetwise question and invite Alamo region residents to define their preferences. Individual residents might consider forwarding their guidance to the AIA community affairs committee via www.alamoca.org and to CCC-MAC Alamo members via www.alamore.org.

There will be more than $1 million dollars to spend now and then next year. Isn’t it time for a majority of Alamo region residents to provide guidance to how it is spent. If neighborhoods or groups in the Alamo region want to discuss what is possible, resident participants should invite the AIA community affairs committee and CCC-MAC Alamo members to informal discussions. No matter what, $1 million is now ready to be spent and it should be more than CCC-PW that decides such uses of our parcel taxes.
