As you review your town square forum you will find attitudes denying the needs of residents, institutions and businesses to be good neighbors within a community. As neighborhoods committees continue mitigation of issues in our Alamo region there are typical responses that excuse various people and organizations from being good neighbors.
Monte Vista High School supporters do not feel that the school needs to be a good neighbor because the school was there first and education is a greater good that any neighbors problems with the school. Supporters of the new Alamo fire house have repeatedly claimed a greater good provided by the fire house and little need to mitigate issues with neighbors and Stone Valley parents. Much has been said about RHCCâ€™s right to impose nighttime operations of lighted tennis courts in proximity to neighborhoods. Supporters of the SRV YMCA continue to lament the loss of the facility planned for that site and continue to defame those neighbors opposing construction and operation as not being part of the greater good for Alamo. Even incorporation continues to be a discussion and AIM supporters continue to defame voters that would not support the undefined incorporation proposal as ignorant of the greater good for Alamo.
A Diablo View on the subject of good neighbor responsibility by organizations, institutions, businesses and individual residents would be newsworthy in our region among selfish viewpoints willing to impose on neighbors for their own purposes. Subscriber news service just provided a national view of this good neighbor issue produced by a major news service and a very local presentation of good neighbor issues would be a logical follow-through.
