Dust issues at Patterson Ranch development

I live opposite the new Patterson Ranch development, and there has been excessive dust raining down on us from construction activities there. I've sent email to the city government, but the response so far has not been satisfactory. There is supposedly a dust plan in place for the development, but I have not received it yetThere seem to be a few issues that are prominent to me:* The land itself was farmed for many decades with fertilizers, and the soil was contaminated with potential…See More

Ask Fremont City Council to consider water, schools, traffic, and open space when approving new development

There are more than 6000 new residential housing units approved or in the approval process in Fremont, all scheduled to be built in the next two years. There are large new developments planned for Sequoia/Paseo Padre, Walnut and Shinn Streets in downtown, the Niles gateway, Mission Boulevard, Osgood Road, Sabercat, Ardenwood, and of course the 4000 units planned for Warm…See More

July 11, 2015 from 4pm to 7pm
Protect Niles is in the process of raising money to pay for lawyers fees.  During the approval process for development of the Henkel site in Niles, the city did not ask the developer to do an EIR (Environment Impact Report).  It was asked for at City Planning and at City Council, but ignored.  So a community group Protect Niles has filed a law suite asking for an EIR.We are holding a fundraiser which includes artwork from many local artists on July 11th from 4 - 7 PM at Niles Hall located at …See More

Please Sign The Petition To Revise the Walnut Apartments Plan 882 5 story units!

Why ask Why?

In his editorial of this week's issue of the Tri City Voice, William Marshak provides coverage of a decision by our Council to renew the current lease agreement with the existing operator (Dirk Lorenz) of the Depot Café/Coffee Shop in Centerville. Marshak allocates the first of his six paragraphs briefly covering details of the decision and reasons why all but one of our council favored the incumbent (despite the conflict of interest he briefly makes mention of) and then allocates the next five…See More

Act before May 5 to STOP the KILLING of rare birds by AWI

Hey Fremont Citizens,I realize this is not specifically a Fremont issue, but we (and our children) will be impacted by the unnecessary murder of rare and beautiful birds in the Altamont Pass.  The Alameda County Board of Supervisors should NOT give AWI three more years to kill birds, when they have done NOTHING in the past TEN YEARS to fulfill their legal mandate.  They should not be rewarded for obfuscating the law. Please help convince Supervisors Miley and Valle to vote for justice, higher…See More

Fremont's procurement of a militarized vehicle

One of the other FCN members made the point that CoF's partial ownership in this militarized vehicle is "...largely flying under the radar...." - which I absolutely agree with. The red cross emblem placed on the doors of this war horse is rather obvious lipstick on a very large pig.   Proponents desperate to soften the…See More
