Anonymous from Pacheco This is the wrong question to ask. Desk-bound bureaucrats choosing McDonalds vs a barber shop. Ask, rather: What do we need as a community. WE NEED MORE TREES. Let us grow an economy around planting trees.

Anonymous from Parkmead Our neighborhood is heavily zoned into offices, shops, housing - a mix up would be better to reduce commuting

Marianne Callahan from Contra Costa Centre I would like to see our county invest in infrastructure that would bring clean transportation and energy.

Anonymous no community selected No. Modern jobs re: renewable energy should be more abundant considering the wind here. More hospitality jobs would be available if CCC did more to attract tourism and more recreational opportunities in the Delta.

2: As the County attempts to revitalize older industrial areas, what types of businesses should the County aim to attract? Are there types that should be discouraged?

Anonymous from Contra Costa Centre Tech is good. Fossil fuels and chemicals should be discouraged.

Marianne Callahan from Contra Costa Centre I would like to see our county move away from fossil fuels and dirty polluting refineries completely and turn those sites into clean energy production, and green sectors.

Anonymous no community selected Tech and renewable energy should be engaged. Also, some tourism for water sports and other recreation. We don't need any more retail and we don't want industry that pollutes.

Heather from Pacheco We need to preserve our industrial areas and not turn them into housing, our highways and byways are to crowded as it is.

Anonymous from Contra Costa Centre We need to make it possible for small businesses to survive in areas where rents have soared. Formula retail is not the answer to building community.

Marianne Callahan from Contra Costa Centre Many of the areas along the bay which now have dirty fossil fuel industry and are poisoning the people, mostly communities of color, that live there.
