Excerpts from stories by our supporters:
Julie Dilley fought a sprawl proposal near her hometown in Asti with Greenbelt Alliance.
“When you’re out here, if you don’t have a neighborhood association that’s been around for 25 years, you feel like you’re on your own and it’s really difficult to figure things out. From my viewpoint, you gave us backbone and I am incredibly thankful—it made a huge difference.”
Larry Ames helped us shape an urban village neighborhood plan in San Jose.
“As a kid, I grew up in the suburbs and everything was ‘get in the car and drive five miles.’ I did not want to be dependent on my car here in San Jose. I’m going to all these [urban village] meetings to make it so the rest of the city has pleasant places to live, work, and enjoy life.”
