Ben Barrientos, Livermore

Let's see, the folks who took time to register their preference on the design of downtown were ignored.

Then, some of us put forward a proposition. The city council folks misled by minimizing the sizes of buildings. Now, it seems that what the citizens of Livermore are going to get is a tiny patch of grass that may creep up through the cracks of cement that will cover the area, where some of us saw a grassy field.

Oh, they need the cement, so an underground garage can be built. A nice park is over the Union Square garage in San Francisco.

I guess it's hard to fight city hall, since they know what is good for us.
