Public misled by developers who are funding Measure L
Regarding Measure L in Brentwood: The people of Contra Costa County have established Urban Limit Line boundaries at the ballot box over and over. The Contra Costa Board of Supervisors has been on the same page trying to reign in traffic for 20 years. Everyone except developers (and their friends) are against this type of development.
It’s misleading, designed to deceive and trick (especially) commuters who often don’t have time to pay attention. So the public is bombarded with large, expensive signs everywhere by well-funded developers.
Just follow the money. The same mentality that created this mess is now using the current conditions as its argument for more of the same.
Past decisions created the problem that is now straining services. Twenty years ago, I attended many “General Plan” community meetings in which the majority of residents clearly advocated a Brentwood population buildout of 43,000. Those voices were largely ignored as we now approach 65,000. T
