anonymous change The East Contra Costa County Fire Protection District (ECCFPD) should NOT have to go begging for funding! Fire protection and emergency services should not be an option and should be paid for "off the top" of the county budget. There are eight fire stations. Why have five been allowed to close? 62% of the population has not decreased, but our fire and emergency services have? This does not make any logical sense nor does it allow for "Resilience" ( a quote from the Envision Contra Costa 2040 Resilience Policy Paper: "Resilience is defined as the ability of a community to prepare for, respond to, and recover from disruptions created or caused by climate change. State law requires that the Contra Costa General Plan address climate change adaptation and resilience") If this is the goal, then providing funding to ECCFPD should be mandatory, not a luxury. 05/27/2020

anonymous love I love the country and would love it to stay that way. It would be great to have "horse lanes" along with the bike lanes to connect to the existing Marsh Creek Trail. There are so many equestrians and equestrian centers/boarding facilities out here, but no place to go. 05/27/2020

Kevin Burke change Concentrating new housing development in places like Knightsen is bad because we're tearing up green land to build it, and it's really far from public transit or job sites. Every new home we built out here is going to add 1 or 2 more cars on the road for 60+ VMT per day driving to job centers. Instead of building more single family homes in Knightsen we should build denser housing closer to transit and closer to job centers like Walnut Creek. This way people can walk, bike, bus, or take the train to work. It's a lot better for the environment and would likely result in a net reduction in VMT and supercommuters. 02/13/2020

anonymous change Extremely low density zoning (mandatory single family home lots, minimum 10,000 square foot lot size) near a world class cycling route, an elementary school and grocery store means that low and moderate income people can't afford to live here. I grew up in Alamo and most of the people I went to middle school with cannot afford to live anywhere in town. This is a shame and produces inequitable outcomes since this area has some of the best schools and best air quality anywhere in unincorporated Contra Costa County Contra Costa inevitably will try to fill its housing need by adding more housing in areas with worse schools and worse air quality. 02/13/2020

Anonymous change San Pablo Dam in general is terribly congested during peak hours, but the intersection of La Colina Rd and San Pablo Dam is the worse in El Sobrante. Better bikes lanes, and a proper bus/shuttle service to El Cerrito Del Norte BART (or Orinda) could solve this issue so easily as well as cut down on our Co2 emissions. 02/11/2020

Joey change The neighborhood of La Colina Hill in El Sobrante is an incredible pocket of Contra Costa County. However, it needs work. First, the lack of sidewalks endangers pedestrians as well as the children of families. Second, the power lines in this neighborhood are very old. This is particularly unsettling considering La Colina Hill is next door to Wildcat Park which is a tinderbox during fire season. One bad spark could destroy all of La Colina Hill as well as nearby neighborhoods. Lastly, there should be a trailhead at the end of La Colina so that the neighborhood as well as the rest of El Sobrante can access the park. 02/11/2020

Rebecca change The public education in El Sobrante needs to improve. As a parent, that is the biggest drawback of living here. So many families I meet here choose to home-school their children because safety and educational needs aren't met. It would also be wonderful to see places like Kennedy Grove and the numerous farms used as learning environments. 01/28/2020

anonymous change The residents of Alamo from Livorno south to Danville become prisoners in their homes during peak AM and PM commute hours. Danville Blvd has become the fifth lane of I-680. The County, Cal Trans and the Congestion Management Agency do absolutely nothing to deal with this matter. Freeway bypass traffic should be discouraged with signage, signals, lights and other traffic management systems. CalTrans and the County should install ramp metering to reduce congestion of I 680. which leads to bypass traffic. Arterial grade crossings for the Iron Horse trail should be built so that it serves as a transportation corridor. Just because this is a more affluent neighborhood doesn't mean that principle of environmental justice don't apply to the residents. 01/24/2020

change SR 4 between Hercules and Pacheco. DEAD ANIMALS. We could cover the entire road in both directions with all the dead fur on the shoulders now. NOW! Every week, another hundred animals slaughtered. This is just wanton, reckless LACK OF STEWARDSHIP. We need critter crossings now, and new critter crossings every week for the next ten years, throughout the county. Little pipes under the road where snakes and small mammals can scurry through to safety. This would make the shoulders less inviting to hawks. We as a human species are watching the planet go up in smoke, yet here in our own county, can't we muster the political vision to protect the critters who co-exist with us? Also, all that motorcycle noise, all those noisy cars and trucks -- that has to have an effect on critters. Can we all quiet it down a bit? I mean, so much gratuitous noise throughout our streets in every city and unincorporated area. A new mandate for peace officers: make the roads quiet. 11/15/2019

change El Sobrante. The constant din and roar of motorcycles and trucks/car with amplified exhausts make quality of life below par. How can a family raise children in El Sobrante, if no one can sleep? The roaring menacing sounds of motorcycles and trucks and cars with amplified exhaust systems are constant, constant, constant. Stop this noise, and the new sidewalks and bike lanes may be useful. Otherwise, all your tax dollars have just been wasted. No one in her right mind wants to walk on SPDR -- it is too scary, because you're constantly looking around to see which vehicle is about to run you down. 11/15/2019

love San Ramon / Danville / Walnut Creek area. Neighborhoods with single-family homes should be preserved. They should be strengthened. Adding "economic development" -- the usual melange of donut shops, Taco Bell, and the rest of that tawdry, unhealthy convenience crap that passes for American ingenuity in this era of gluttony and corporatist greed -- is merely long-term destruction of what's right and good with this county. 11/15/2019

Sue Guest change Kirker Pass Road to Ygnacio Valley Road to Walnut Creek Border. Traffic bumper to bumper in the morning. Traffic from Ygnacio Valley uses all the side streets, especially through the Crossing neigborhood, to circumvent the standstill, despite posted signs that state cars are NOT to drive through from Ayers to Cowell Roads. Drivers speed along South Larwin. Cars are literally backed up 20 cars plus long at the west end of South Larwin at around 7:30 am. It is an accident waiting to happen. 10/17/2019

John Lisenko change San Pablo Dam Road needs bike lanes from El Portal to Appian Way. For bicyclists this is a dangerous and congested corridor and there are no alternate routes. Sidewalks are narrow and are not a reasonable alternative. Room for bikes can be created by eliminating the few parking areas alomg the road. there is plenty of off street parking. 10/03/2019

anonymous change County fails to adequately provide police protection to residents on this road. Speeding is out of control. Inadequate lanes/turn around and pull off locations (for disabled vehicles). Illegal dumping has been reported on a regular basis for several years with no county action plan yet in place to deal with it (relies on residents to make a report every single time) and does nothing to catch/prosecute offenders. No fire hydrants available on this road for the homes that are between Concord and Pittsburg borders. No internet/communication services available to reach residents in an emergency unless it is satellite. Cell Phones do not always have coverage depending where standing. 08/26/2019

anonymous change Old Nantucket site is attracting homeless and drugs to our fragile community. The strip of land between the railroad tracks and the water is owned by the State of California and they have been collecting rent from buildings on the site, the Nantucket and the Striped Bass Club and some abandoned buildings and a half dozen wrecked boats. If this was owned by a private party they would be prosecuted for creating a public hazard. The Community of Crockett has had access to water for fishing and boat launching here for more than a century, please help us keep this precious access point to nature something that has been excluded by the railroad and C&H Sugar. 08/16/2019

love I envision Bethel Island as a Family Friendly Residential and Recreational Community- I'm very concerned about the extremely high tax rate along the Cypress corridor with the thousands of new homes. We need to address this now, if we don't it will have a drastic negative affect on this area 20 years from now. The high tax rate is already having a negative affect in the first few subdivisions that were built in 2005, 2006 on Cypress. Also, please protect and keep the agricultural land on Bethel Island, do not develop. We need this open space to preserve the natural beauty of the island. There are more than enough homes scheduled on Cypress and Bethel Island rd(before the bridge) and Delta Coves to accommodate future growth. Again, we are a recreational destination and NOT an Industrial Park. No processing plants, light industrial or manufacturing! 06/05/2019

This is everyday, I have to wear noise canceling headsets to be in my own house! Unbelievable. Another neighbor has had the police come 113 times in 3 years but the police cant do anything about it. These neighbors just keep it up with music around 68 decibels. Please do something! The good neighbors are moving out. Its such a dump with illegal buildings all over the place!
