BC-CCSGI News: Do You Want to Live in a Crowded and Noisy Urban City?

Do You Want to Live in a Crowded and Noisy Urban City?

Dear Community,
   We take some things in life for granted, but will they disappear before we notice it?
   What we appreciate about Cupertino that sets it apart from more crowded cities might disappear as more and more high density developments creep into our beloved city.

   As suburban Cupertino gets transformed into an urban city, our night won't be quiet any more since our streets will be filled with traffic well into the night, like most streets in an urban city. Our streets won't be safe for our kids to ride bikes to schools anymore since the streets will be filled with impatient drivers who have been stuck behind the wheels for an extended period of time. We will become one of the impatient and stressed drivers as our daily commute become longer and longer.
   Our daily lives don't have to become more crowded and more stressful. Our beloved city does not have to transform into a crowded urban city. Unfortunately, the City Council and developers in town have made decisions for us. They have decided to turn Cupertino into an urban city and the massive office development at Vallco leads the way. 

   Fortunately, we still have a chance to stop it. A group of concerned residents at BetterCupertino are working hard to inform other residents about upcoming changes. We don't have to accept a more crowded and stressful life. Together we should be in control of our beloved Cupertino. We live here. We decide.

   Unfortunately, the developers are sending their paid out-of-town canvassers to go door to door to provide deceiving information to Cupertino residents. Our City Council is doing nothing to dispute the misinformation spread by the canvassers for developers. BetterCupertino needs your help.

   If you don't want to live in a crowded and noisy urban city, please 
   The City Council allocated massive office space to Vallco in 2014 without sufficient public hearing, even when the Council was already aware that Apple Campus 2 would worsen traffic congestion and housing crisis. 
   We are standing against the City Council who granted 3 times more office and removed 160 senior housing units to Main Street project without sufficient justification.
    Your donation is a loud voice against a City Council who bent over at developer's requests again and again.

    Was the City Council responsible? Or ignorant? Incompetent? Irresponsible? Or simply corrupt?

   Your donation is a testimony to the City Council that citizens are united to demand a responsible City Council that doesn't bend backwards in favor of developers.
   Please volunteer or donate to BetterCupertino today to unite with other citizens in our fight for a better Cupertino.

   We Live Here. We Decide.
