  1. ECT should fact check this, nothing put out by the City Staff or Council is community driven. It’s all a dog and pony show to make it look like they want advice from residents but will go ahead and really do as they want. Until the city council has balls and fires Bryan Montgomery, the residents are nothing more than pawns and we will not get what we actually want. If they really cared, every resident would get a chance to provide feedback, not just 500 mailed surveys.

  2. They want more gas stations (unhealthy), storage units (large and ugly) and now a Mosque (Islamists want to kill us and take over the world). Get a grip Oakley City Council!

  3. They are going to build that Mosque……Oakley will be just like Fremont is in 5 years……The coucil realized that Oakley would never be the little Walnut Creek, that they hoped for, so instaed the settled on it being little Fremont.
