Update from Stand Up 4 Fremont!

Regarding Sunday afternoon's meeting, after much discussion the group unanimously decided that trying to do a Referendum was not viable, given that we needed 10,500 validated, unique signatures by Jan. 6th, in under 4 weeks, with limited number of volunteers, & with a prohibitively expensive price quote of $60K to do it via paid team of signature gatherers. So the group voted unanimously to explore Litigation as the way to alter the course of the Walnut Residences project. And our Advisory…See More

BART warm spring extension delay

The BART warm spring extension project has been delayed and delayed so many times. We were told Fall/2015, Fall/2016, and now Winter/2017 or Spring/2017.BART is running an open ended project with no deadline. It is a waste of public fund and resource with no oversight. I emailed to BART and questioned about accountability, they cannot provide an answer.No one knows the project status and no one can provides a solid date. I think it is time to contact our political representatives or media to…See More

Walnut Second Reading Results and Next Steps

Thanks to all who were able to attend last nights City Council meeting and especially those who got up to speak in support. Update from last nights City Council meeting...A few last minute surprises from our outgoing mayor and City Staff.  First staff changed the agenda a little and broke up the Walnut vote so that it was just for the rezoning and not the approval of the project.  This confused a lot of people as well as several council members as in the last meeting they had voted on some…See More
