A recently formed committee, Citizens for a Livermore Central Park, reported that they are filing an initiative with the City of Livermore this week that outlines a new plan for the center of the city. Within the next two weeks, they expect to begin collecting signatures for the initiative to qualify it for the ballot. Once the required signatures are gathered, the initiative will be put to a vote of the people. In effect, residents will be able to choose between the city’s existing downtown plan and an alternative.

Bill Dunlop, chair of the organization, stated in a press release, “The Central Park Plan provides better parks and better parking, for a better Livermore. The City Council was given a once in a lifetime opportunity to create something special on the 8.2 acres of city owned land in the downtown core; they failed to do so.”
