Strong Support at the Fourth of July Celebration
Posted July 4, 2016

 

As we continue our efforts to collect signatures, this July Fourth weekend has led to hundreds of signatures being collected in support of this initiative. Citizens have overwhelmingly positive reactions to the proposed plan and show strong disapproval for additional housing downtown.

New Initiative Underway!
Posted August 17, 2016

Our STY2 notice of intent and initiative was filed with City Clerk Arne Simonsen on Monday August 15th.  The City Attorney for Antioch has 15 days to submit back to us our ballot title and summary.

 

Once we receive that back from the City and it meets with our approval we will have to publicize the notice of intent and initiative in the local news paper, CCTimes.  We will take that proof of publication to Arne within 10 days and also file the final petition for approval and circulation. Once that is certified we will have 180 days to gather signatures.  If we were to gather 15% of the registered voter signatures we could call for the City to hold a special election.  This would be very expensive for the City at an estimated cost of $135,000 to $185,000.  We would only hope that Council and maybe a new Council would choose to adopt the initiative at that time and not spend the money for a special ballot measure.

Initiative Kick-off: Antioch Cruise Night!
Posted October 12, 2016

This Saturday during the “Antioch Cruise Night” event, we will be collecting signatures for our petition to make the Old Beede Lumber Yard a town square.

Based on a long Antioch tradition, “the cruise” was a time where the people would hop in their freshest, cleanest, cars and show them off by driving around downtown. This tradition is being revived for one night only!

We're looking for motivated individuals to help collect signatures! We will train you! No Experience necessary! To volunteer please contact, Antonio Hernandez. Phone: 925 437-2058 Email: Antoniohernandez@mail.com
