The citizens of Livermore need to make their mind up.
Behind this Central Park initiative ie really a movement to slow or stop the infill development within the City.

But they can’t have it both ways. The State of California and a growing population is going to dictate additional housing and their is a demand for additional Hotel Beds. You can accomplish this the way the City is moving forward or you can push development out into the remaining rural area surrounding the city.

You can’t have both. Keeping the remaining rural areas as they are is preferable in my opinion.

It makes you wonder who might be behind killing the infill development the City has been moving on and proposing for the future. Might it be the big developers who have been trying to get their hands on North Livermore Valley for 25 years, knowing the State growth rules require a minimum amount of growth to meet the high demand.

I wonder...??????
