It’s quite unfair and misdirecting for Kevin Sheridan of Valley Link to pose the only correct time to submit comment, is during the EIR, back in 2014! The engineering in 2014 was conceptual only at best, with zero public awareness. Only in 2021-22 has even the City of Livermore started assigning public committee attention to look at the Light Rail project which is now only at 15% funded and still in the conceptual engineering layout stage. Nothing has been permanently determined. They are months and years away from what will be allowed to develop at the proposed stations. Public input is appropriate on every phase, in fact it is essential … one such input being (A) to abandon expensive sites and provide robust bus services from existing Wheels, and (B) another to fund and build the promised BART line out to Altamont. (C) The only sure thing is the Transportation Lobby is one of the most powerful lobbies in the DC Beltway and it’s not going away no matter what, including War, Pandemic, or Biblical Flood.
