URGENT: Concord Naval Weapons Station City Council Meetings - Let your voice be heard!

December 1st, 2008 and January 12th, 2009

The Concord Council will continue to hear from the public about all aspects of the two alternatives before them. Thanks to those who attended the meeting on November 17 - we packed the room and 208 people attended. We need people to attend on Monday, December 1 and on Monday, January 12th, both meetings at 6:30 pm at the Baldwin Park Concord Senior Center at 2727 Parkside Circle. Both upcoming Council meetings are important; the city could decide to hold just one meeting. The conclusion will be that the city chooses a preferred plan and makes its recommendation to the Navy for a Reuse Plan.

It's important that they hear from the public that we would like:

-- increased open space--80% of the 5100 acre site.
-- a wider linear park along the boundary with existing neighborhoods.
-- solid guarantees that the open space will be transferred to EBRPD as a public benefit conveyance (so that it will cost the public the least) as a new regional park.

Save Mount Diablo is a member of the Community Coalition for a Sustainable Concord, We will have flyers with additional information at the meeting and Community Coalition stickers that we hope you will wear, identifying yourself as a supporter.
