YMCA: Abuse of a neighborhood

Original post made by Alamo community of neighborhoods, Alamo, on May 10, 2007

Your article picturing happy faces ready to impose a YMCA commercial facility deep into the Hemme neighborhood illustrates the selfishness of a few YMCA supporters in Alamo. The Mt. Diablo Region YMCA site,, has previously published that only 7% of Alamo residents support the construction and operations of YMCA commercial facilities in the Hemme neighborhood. In polling over the past 3 years, 76% of Alamo residents will actively support opposition efforts to such commercial construction and >83% would vote against the construction if it were a matter for election.

Alamo neighborhoods,

Please attend the Alamo incorporation meeting, May 30, Creekside Church, at 7PM.

* Will incorporation provide a city council commitment keep commercial construction out of our neighborhoods?

* Will an Alamo City Council focus on neighborhood concerns, interests and advisory? What will you gain by local rather than county planning and decision making?

* Will community groups, as the minority in Alamo, set the agendas for an Alamo City Council?

* Will all incorporation plans include a formation charter that specifies a General Plan of our community?

Alamo, don't you really need to know?
