Another hooray for the General Plan vote

Blogger/Ten Space's David Garcia.

“I cannot overstate how big Tuesday’s vote was for the future of Stockton.”

—Blogger/infill developer David Garcia on his Stockton City Limits blog, extolling the Council for selecting a General Plan 2040 that prioritizes infill and fixing the existing city over sprawl.

Garcia goes on:

“I have a long held belief that a number of our city’s ills are a direct result from our sprawling land use pattern, from obesity, to segregation, to stagnating neighborhood revitalization, to our shortage of community resources, and even our bankruptcy. … So to not only see the council vote in favor of Alternative C, but to see them ask thoughtful questions and articulate why Alternative C clearly was the best option gives me incredible hope for the future of our city.”

Garcia’s piece amplified one I did a couple days earlier. Read Garcia here. Also note a reader’s comment at bottom, which ends, “It’s so nice to see you (Stockton) emerge from your 60-year coma.”
