Let me be very personal in welcoming to Supervisor Gayle Uilkema and offer some thoughts.
Offices at Hap Magee cottage, previously SRV YMCA offices, are county-owned and convenient meeting rooms are available.
Reaching out to the Alamo region, Saranap to North Danville, is quite easy by joining the AIA in sponsoring a regional town hall meeting. The Alamo Women's Club could do the same as reception for the corridor. Our corridor chambers can sponsor a gathering in Danville/San Ramon to engage our business districts and neighborhoods.
As has been a reality in the last six months, the 24/680 south corridor neighborhoods forums quickly built linkage and fully understand that they have communities, transportation corridor, economic development and political power in common.
Welcome Supervisor Uilkema, much is ready for your engagement.

The concept of final approval today has been challenged by a potential legal action to show cause for the lack of due process and public consideration of approval of 17D amended map and now the approval of the resulting ordinance. Released today was the documentation of multiple private meetings in violation of due process starting July 13 and proceeding to early this week. Key in the determination of such violations is the belief by supervisors and other officials that they have the right to meet privately to develop proposals to be approved in public meetings under constitutional guarantees of freedom of speech and right to privacy.
Thus the use of the word "final" might be premature.

I've alteady welcomed Gayle as my new Supervisor directly.
She already knows me.
A District office in downtown Walnut Creek on N California Blvd near YVR would seem a great location.
