  1. I cannot thank everyone in our community enough for this change of direction from the City Council! I know that it only occured because of the voices that were raised in defense of our family home. It is very encouraging to see them change course and I know that more can be done to create a Library and preserve a Park for current and future generations of Walnut Creek citizens to cherish and enjoy.
