Is Alamo a frightening example for other incorporations?

Original post made by Community courtesy on Apr 23, 2009

Dear Dolores,

During this evening, the list of proposed incorporations and their committees have been contacting Alamo region neighborhoods through municipal law council to understand why incorporation failed in Alamo. These committees are concerned that Alamo is benchmark for voters' concerns for the fiscal crisis.

As counsel explained, Alamo was not a community seeking incorporation and had a separate committee of strangers to the majority of voters that pursued their own incorporation proposal. Without community, and its community, incorporation failed in the hands of strangers to the majority in the Alamo region.

In Alamo, incorporation is not dead, but we have to become a community in our mutual support of a well-defined, inclusive incorporation proposal. Just give us time to get a proper job done of incorporation.

Any comments?

Dear Dolores,

Discussions of forms of Municipal Advisory Councils (MAC) for the Alamo region will occur today in Alamo region discussion groups meetings. Discussions will focus on three proposals now in distribution.

AIM participants have defined a MAC and nominated council members to bring a more open public discussion of Alamo's issues under Brown Act rules.

Individual incorporation proponents have defined a MAC that would eliminate local politicians and their agendas for Alamo.

Regional neighborhoods have defined a regional planning commission for Saranap, Rudgear, Tice Valley and Alamo with current county advisory committees as sub-committees of the commission. **Readers should note that this proposal is meant as formation efforts for defined incorporation as a city in the Alamo region**

Certainly, these proposals deserve commentary by your Forum readers including commentary by other communities pursuing incorporation.
