Happy Monday friends and neighbors.

Quick weekend update on the effort to defeat the Brentwood ballot measure on November 5, 2019 – yes, it’s a special election just around the corner! We secured another 26 opposition signatures and one campaign donation on Saturday morning; thank you Jovita and Sinziana for your help at the Information Table, and thank you Sheila for contributing! Here are some items coming up this week, and please watch for our newsletter tomorrow:

  1. City Council Meeting, Tuesday, 8/13 @ 7pm, City Council Chambers. Come out and talk to the Council during the public comments section in the beginning of the meeting. You can express your thoughts on any topic tomorrow night. Then, you may want to stay for the agenda items which include a discussion on the ECC Fire Protection District Strategic Plan & a medical services committee recommendation; as well as a report on the Amphitheater feasibility study, the one planned by the John Marsh home off Vineyards Parkway.
  2. EB Regional Parks meeting, Wednesday, 8/14 @ 7pm, Brentwood Community Center. A 2nd meeting to discuss the details of completing an awesome 3-mile trail from Vineyards Parkway/Marsh Creek Road all the way to Round Valley Regional Park. This is a great plan for bicyclists and hikers alike! Dan & I went to the first one, guided path ideas, shade structures, path surface requests, etc. Get out to convey what you want to see in that trail, flyer attached.
  3. Assignment of the Ballot Measure letter, Thursday, 8/15. The County Elections Office will randomly assign the letter that will be associated with the Vineyards @ Deer Creek initiative for our November 5 Special Election. We will be ready to roll with printing our materials once that letter is assigned, such as lawn signs, flyers, door hangers, etc. We will need your help to distribute those items. Thank you!

A busy week in Brentwood! Please help keep all your friends and folk abreast of the Special Election, and other happenings in town.
