The city fathers (and mothers) will just ignore a petition, Why don't you just start a recall drive. They won't ignore that, I assure you.

We signed at Trader Joe's 2 weeks ago, and had to stand in line to do so. Ironically a Trader Joe's manager came out and told the signature gatherer that she would have to move a bit because the entrance was so clogged with those of us standing in line. The wait to sign the petition exceeded the time I spent in line waiting to check out at the register. Perhaps a good omen for the cause. I am also curious to learn more about the suggestion to explore the option that the town buys the land to create a space we all can enjoy.

@Rick: Thanks so much for signing the initiative petition! Once the legally -required voters signatures are obtained,the Town is legally required to put the initiative on a special election ballot. If it passes, it becomes law just like Ballot Measure S did. As you know, the Town is now trying to circumvent Measure S,requiring SOS-Danville to do the petition, possibly referend the draft 2030 General Plan, and possibly have to sue the Town to enforce the law. That all takes a lot of effort and money, and is why the Town apparently thought it could ignore Measure S with impunity.
