Quote of the Moment:

“Bike lanes, trees, old houses with character, interesting neighborhoods all attract the types of people who, in turn, tend to enhance the community.  Livable neighborhoods that include the above attributes (and more) are always cited in the ‘best places to live’ surveys.  When the developers and their money are gone and huge housing complexes, busy streets,  and cookie cutter businesses remain, something has been lost that cannot be replaced and your town becomes yet another anonymous, impersonal cityscape.  Think about it before its too late to preserve your town’s character.”

~ Carla Ennis, Emeryville Resident
