Alamo eyes cityhood

Original post made on Jun 8, 2007

Alamo has stepped up its movement toward incorporation just as Danville is celebrating its 25th anniversary as a town. The unincorporated area has been rife with private meetings of insiders devising the best way to achieve independence from the county, as one unpopular decision after another was foisted upon them. Just as planning issues were the driving force behind Danville's incorporation, many Alamo residents are tired of decisions about their community being made at the county level by five supervisors who do not live anywhere near the San Ramon Valley, much less Alamo.

Dear Dolores,

Thank you for your clear commentary on incorporation and focusing on the retention of Alamo's character through local planning. The abuses of the character of Alamo neighborhoods by the county, Danville, SRVUSD and SRV YMCA will not be tolerated by the majority of Alamo residences and their neighborhood groups. Alamo's majority will not support an Alamo city council with the same abusive powers as the CCC-BOS. As a result, in addition to various legal action and county reformation activities, Alamo's majority in neighborhood groups will support a well-defined formation charter with specific limitations of the power of the city council as City of Alamo incorporation in 2009.

As incorporation returns to the back burner of issues Alamo faces, we can appreciate, created by Steve Mick, as a forum for Alamo community communication. Alamo's majority in neighborhood groups has been pursuing the formation of various councils and committees to immediately defend our community from actions by governments and organizations including Contra Costa County, Danville, SRV YMCA and MVHS/SRVUSD. If such private council efforts through appropriate counsel fail to protect Alamo neighborhoods from abuses, incorporation will return to immediate consideration by all of Alamo.

Our thanks to Steve!
