Yes - I agree. I went out last night up Charleston to El Camino and low and behold the whole place is torn up. Busy bees trying to narrow the road. I know how many cars use that road at commute time - they are backed up from San Antonio up to Middlefield. So they are trying to push everyone onto San Antonio? Also backed up to commute time. There are reams of cars using Louis Road as a commute road.

The bigger issue is that the city, county, and state are pushing homeless issues and housing issues but are spending money on roads that do not been fixing. Where are the priorities here. The city needs to provide data on how much money is coming in and how it is being spent on city services. And they want to build more housing in these specific areas which will require more avenues of entry and exit.
So a whole bunch of legislation on one topic but the city actually spending money on another topic and is counterproductive. So who is running this place? So much for the BLUE state and it's "audacious" activity.

I hope there are no plans to hire a "consultant" regarding any topic that comes out of these meetings. We have a staff that is hired to do a job and do not need "consultants" to tell us what we instructed them to tell us. We are not an ATM machine for consultants.
