BART AT STONERIDGE
Original post made by aaron, Highland Oaks, on Mar 3, 2008
Doesn't anyone else see this as a bad idea? at the owens location, not too many homes or businesses. but along stoneridge, many neighborhoods. which have always been quiet, and for the most part crime free!!! This is definately a bad decision, and am wondering if something can be done to halt it before it comes. I mean weren't they supposed to go out to livermore then to tracy like 10 years ago. or is it ok for alameda county to pay taxes on nothing. wasn't there also an extension to san jose comming soon? either way i don't want bart in my neighborhood. look at all the neighborhoods along barts path. all are crime riden and pretty trashy. look out the parking lot and see crime, poverty, and filth. is that what people want surrounding the mall, and the surrounding neighborhood. not what i want or my neighbors, that's for sure. I don't see the mall having that much of a problem, with business. they seem pretty busy to me. and if so, why not try putting better stores, instead of worsening the area. About 20 years ago there was a homeless problem in that neighborhood, and the parks. do we need this again? I don't think so. it may not happen immediately, but with time it will happen.
