Livermore City Council Meeting

Monday May 18th, 2015 at 7:00 PM

3575 Pacific Avenue, Livermore, CA 94550

Come early to get seats-last City Council meeting was standing-room only.

If you can’t attend, send a message to your city officials listed here: http://www.cityoflivermore.net/citygov/council/default.asp

OK here we go. Finally the years of research, meetings, more research and more meetings are reaching a conclusion about the new Preliminary Carnegie Master Plan and Draft Environmental Impact Report which when approved, will eventually open the gate to the additional 3,100 acres purchased in the 1990’s.  Please be aware that the people who tried to close Carnegie 4 years ago have NEVER given up and will be flooding State Park administrative offices with emails and opposition letters. We MUST outdo them. Here are the steps to finally getting this done.

If you can’t attend the meeting in person, below are some other things you can do.

  1. Send a support letter or email before June 29th to: http://www.carnegiegeneralplan.com/DEIR-comments

In a simple statement, document your approval for the plan.

Block implementation of any specific items that will take place over many years and have to get environmental approval after additional user input. We HAVE to get our foot in the door and see this project approved after waiting and supporting it for over 15 years.

  1. Be informed. Below are frequently asked questions and answers:

Our generation has a challenge to get this new recreation area open for future generations. It is our civic duty and when accomplished it will prove our mettle and make those who end up using the new park for years to come proud of our efforts.

 

We hope to have your support and we thank you for it.
