Original post made by Maybell neighbor on Jun 30, 2013
We need your help to achieve this though. We need 3000 signatures in the next 28 days!
Come to the KICK-OFF PETITION GATHERING event on Sunday, June 30 from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at Juana Briones Park, near the kiddie structure across the street from the property. Enjoy some fresh homemade lemonade and cookies at the park. Signature gathering volunteers will also be at the farmer's market, grocery stores, and other venues in Palo Alto.
(If you come from another part of Palo Alto and share a common experience, we want to hear about what you are going through, too!)

Sincerely wish you the best of luck on this.
Please add times and places where we can sign the petition over the next days as and when.

Yes, I'll sign this petition. Mandatory re-zoning by the City and/or the City Council should not be allowed without a vote of the residents.
So, ABAG wants to force Palo Alto to build over 2,000 housing units over the next few years which means the City will be forced to buy up existing single family homes and re-zone them for multiple units. This has just happened on Maybell but could happen anywhere in Palo Alto and should be stopped right now.
If Palo Alto refuses ABAG's housing mandate they are threatened with loosing grant money for infrastructure repairs. In the immediate future this will mean the City won't get the money to remove two lanes of traffic on California Avenue - would this be so bad, in my opinion "No".

I wasn't able to stop by the event today, but my husband and I would like to sign, what are the other times and places to sign the petition?
