The most important thing for Livermore residents to know about the downtown initiative proposal is that it removes all explicit affordability requirements for housing in the Downtown Specific Plan. While the current plan calls for housing "affordable to a variety of incomes, serving the Livermore workforce," the initiative proposal replaces this language with a call for housing for "residents who enjoy the dynamic downtown lifestyle," on page 8 of the initiative.

Livermore's community character includes a strong commitment to welcoming and helping neighbors who have trouble paying for the extremely expensive housing in the area. The initiative backers are dodging our obligations and damaging our historic character.
