“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.”
