|Grace Schmidt: A Record of Advocacy for Alamo
Grace stands for...
Preserving the character of Alamo
We must retain Alamo's two-lane roads, trees, minimum half-acre zoning, and local businesses that serve Alamo's needs.
Openness in local government
Grace got the word out last year to Alamo citizens about the planned expansion of the Danville Boulevard/Stone Valley Road intersection. Says Grace, "Alamo citizens stand up for what they want in their community when they know what is being done in their community."
Harmonious relationships with local and regional government staff and officials
Grace regularly attends meetings of the Southwest Area Transportation Committee (SWAT), the Transportation, Water & Infrastructure Committee (TWIC) of the Board of Supervisors, and the Tri-Valley Transportation Council (TVTC).
Actions of government entities like SWAT, TWIC, and the TVTC have great effect on the quality of life in Alamo, and yet their actions -- and even their existence -- are not always known to Alamo citizens.
Finding a balance among differing points of view about local government in Alamo
Grace crafted the inclusive resolution of the Alamo Improvement Association Board of Directors about Alamo incorporation.
