Discuss MVHS Solar Power Generation Station tonight

Original post made by [removed], Alamo, on Jun 9, 2011

Dear Editor,

Monte Vista High School neighbors in Alamo and Danville can learn about the actual plans for a solar power generation station to be constructed as a carport covering the large parking lot in Alamo tonight, June 9, 7 PM, at the AIA Board meeting, Creekside Church, in Alamo. Specific concerns for the required height for the structure to allow emergency vehicles access and the superstructure needed to carry the weight of large solar panels and their tracking systems are the key issues to be presented and discussed.

Recent solar carport construction on Oak Park Blvd, Pleasant Hill, illustrated the massive industrial appearance of a solar generation power station built as a carport exceeding 24 feet in height. If such a power station is built in Alamo neighborhoods, the station will be a visually predominant to surrounding neighborhoods looking down on a massive array of solar panels and superstructure.

Dear Editor,

Let us together bring the history and reality of the Alamo Improvement Association ("AIA") to the consideration of your readers.

For greater than a half century, AIA volunteers, elected as a board by direct and representative members from neighborhoods, business district groups and community groups, have provided interactive discussions, consideration and mitigation of issues that impact Alamo's majority of residents' relationship with governments and districts effecting policy, programs, projects and planning in the Alamo region. The successful maintenance of community and neighborhood character has been the mission of AIA planning and other committees. Such success is obvious as a majority of residents quickly see such valuable AIA results.

Today, recognizing the dynamics of neighborhoods in Alamo, AIA board members have created a community affairs committee to deal directly with neighborhood, business district and community groups on issues of government communication, public safety, parks and recreation, beautification and community services. Tonight's meeting is a reflection of the AIA's focus on neighborhoods as MVHS neighbors are invited to come and review further planning of a solar power generation station to be built as a massive carport within and in view of Alamo neighbors at Monte Vista High School. Such outreach is unique in Alamo because no county or local government offers such community engagement and fully interactive review of meaningful issues that impact Alamo region's majority.

Your readers need only come see for themselves tonight in the community meeting room provided by Creekside Church for the AIA and its direct and representative members.
