New library!

We would also like to see a new library built. Encourage more open space, build more hiking trails at the Hillside Nature Area. Solicit a mini-Fry's Electronics store to El Cerrito, if there is not a big-enough lot for a regular-size Fry's. Finally, a real fitness center is coming to town at the old McDonald Ave Safeway -long overdue. On the news last night- El Cerrito has the highest sales tax in Calif.

Fry's in El Cerrito is a great idea. It would be right between the Fremont and Concord locations, and would be a good resource for many of the tech hobbyists and businesses from here to Oakland. The old Safeway on Moeser would be perfect for this, because it can't be a grocery. I can think of many instances where I would have paid a little extra to pick up a replacement hard drive or other parts instead of paying for shipping and waiting a few days on line.

El Cerrito would improve its financial structure by annexing the east Richmond heights sphere of influence to which it has exclusive rights under Lafco? There would be no negative hit to the city budget as east Richmond heights is virtually self sufficient assuming el Cerrito successfully negotiates with the county. El Cerrito would gain about 1400 families east of ralston ave. our neighborhood is fully developed with lights, sewage and paved streets. El Cerrito residents would achieve additional fire protection from fuel control of the winds blowing down from the ridge. Police statistics tics demonstrate a very low crime rate. This initiative warrents an indepth economic study

I live near the new gym coming to McDonald Ave. We ARE happy about it.
