My wife and I drove through downtown Livermore yesterday and we were amazed on how wonderful their old town was. Not only was it beautiful; it was thriving. Our next thought was what a shame that Brentwood didn’t follow suit.
Years ago, I commented in a letter to the editor on how the City of Brentwood should pattern their planning after Los Gatos in designing a quaint downtown and now I am holding Livermore up as an even better example. But oh no, instead, our city erects a huge Taj Mahal for themselves and removes the symbol of old-town living – the park with a gazebo.
Nice going, City Council; you missed a huge opportunity and you should all be replaced at the next election.
