Town of Alamo Incorporation Studies, August 7, 2008

Original post made by Lisa Wright, Alamo, on Jul 17, 2008

Reminder for your calendars:

On August 7, 2008, Contra Costa Local Agency Formation Commission (LAFCO), will present incorporation study results in a community meeting held at the Creekside Church, 7PM to 9PM, in the Alamo business district. The purpose of this meeting is to provide understanding of the study results to residents within the boundaries of the proposed Town of Alamo and answer any questions related to such studies.

We encourage regional neighbors to attend this meeting to better understand incorporation proposed as the Town of Alamo. It is important that opposition, supporters and those that differ with current incorporation proposal attend this meeting and express their will, interests and opinions to LAFCO staff for commissioners’ consideration.

State of California, “A Guide to the LAFCO Process for Incorporation” -, click on "resources" for further study.

Notice: County and county-related meetings use the term “testimony” to describe commentary, opinion, concern and complaint voiced by individual residents at their public meetings. Please do not be intimidated by the term ‘testimony” and understand that the word is being misused due to its definition, “Evidence given under oath by a competent witness.” At no time does your right of commentary, opinion, concern and complaint qualify as “testimony” or are you responsible for any commentary under the rules of law governing “testimony.”

Lisa Wright, Diablo Vista regional counsel committee

Dear Lisa,

It never ceases to amaze me how Alamo "newbies" like yourself can get your facts messed up. The Creekside Church is NOT anywhere near the "Alamo Business District." It is almost 2000 feet from HD/Yardbirds and 2500 feet from Stone Valley Road. And just so you don't have to do the math yourself, that's about a half a mile from the "business district."

Such an inaccuracy and exaggeration leds me to question your entire item. What else do you have wrong?

Research more and write less.
