Dear neighbors,

This very well presented reality of the political roundabout that led to a handful voting for a Danville Blvd roundabout design is confirmation of how the Alamo Community as <90 active participants gains consensus from regional aggregated politics.

Any plan for Danville Blvd in the Alamo business district that does no consider overall access and appropriate access lanes is simply another version of a safety hazard. More than a handful have spoken among the Iron Horse neighbors and it is time for the county to set aside excuses and remove Danville Blvd as a throughway in our business district.

Further discussions is only avoidance of the danger,

Dear neighbors,

Iron Horse neighbors for the length of Danville Blvd in Alamo are committed to removal of the current roadway in the business district and creating a well-planned mall with appropriate access lanes and primary concerns for pedestrian safety. Any configuration of the Danville Blvd as a thoroughfare, including a completely silly roundabout, will not be considered a serious effort by our county representatives to serve our interests, needs and advisory.

Sounds like resident Watson got the run-around on the roundabout.

Ah, Ron, welcome back!

It is hard to imagine anything more silly than a roundabout. But let me add to the humor with a 2005 concept from "Alamorata, living with our mistakes, CA 94507." The Alamo Town Fools at that time wanted to build a light house in the middle of the roundabout as the Good Day to Die Mortuary with the slogan, "it's a good day to die but you have to get around to it!"

Just imagine how many commuters we could bury as a result of the roundabout. Yes, just imagine!

Smile your smile, Ron,
