Do you live in Brentwood?
Yes


If yes, how long have you lived in Brentwood?
6-10 years


Do you work in Brentwood? If not, please tell us where in the "Other" field.
Other - Retired, still paying for school bonds. Paid for education for 40 years, and my children already, give us a break!!


What would you like to see more of in Brentwood, specifically within the Priority Area 1 plan area (you may choose more than one answer)?
Restaurants, Offices, Light industrial uses, Parks and recreation


Do you think there are enough employment opportunities in Brentwood?
No


What types of jobs or industries should Brentwood try to attract within Priority Area 1 (you may choose multiple selections)?
Hi-tech jobs (biotech, computers, etc.), "Green" industries, Energy production


How do you feel about the prospect of the City approving high density, transit-oriented housing within Priority Area 1? (High density housing implies apartments and condos, potentially up to eight stories tall, with densities of 30 or more housing units per acre.)
Strongly oppose


How do you feel about the prospect of eBART service being extended to Brentwood at State Route 4, south of Lone Tree Way? (eBART is a light rail system that would connect to areas already served by BART.)
Strongly oppose


If the City needed to approve more high density housing within Priority Area 1 to help facilitate an eBART extension into Brentwood, would this change your opinion on the appropriateness of high density housing within Priority Area 1?
No - I’d be less likely to support high-density housing if it improved the odds of eBART coming to Brentwood.


How do you feel about the prospect of a transit facility being constructed within Priority Area 1 (presumably near State Route 4, between Lone Tree Way and Sand Creek Road)?
Strongly oppose


What type of future development would you like to see within Priority Area 1?
I would like to see the city of Brentwood planning continue as it was 6 years ago, before they tasted the huge tax base of housing in the city. eBART is not going to improve Brentwood, it is going to increase the crime in the area, as many others have pointed out. We don't need to bring more crime to Brentwood. We don't need high density housing, creating more issues with traffic in the area streets, making it even more difficult to get around in the area. Keep Brentwood family oriented, not high tax, or high crime oriented. We are already getting slop over from Antioch, which didn't use to happen. High density housing will make it even worse. Keep the skyline clear!!

Senior/Disabled Housing
BMR, not necessarily low income apartments/condo's/housing specifically geared towards single individuals between 20-26 year demographics

Educational Institute: Community College/CSU satellite. In conjunction with the Los Medanos expansion consider-- student housing similar to what is offered by Butte Community College; I always thought Brentwood would be a wonderful small college town understand that probably not in the area proposed but always thought that Brentwood would also be a great place for a CSU....similar to California State University Channel Islands. Think it will create jobs

What type of future development would you like to see within Priority Area 1?
More high paying jobs, so people don't have to commute every day for 2-4 hours per day, more activities, entertainment for teens, I don't see much for them to do, other than go to the movies or eat fast food since there isn't too many good choices of good restaurants, a mall, where people can feel comfortable with air conditioner during summer and stay warm during winter, Costco.

Other - Property Tax Exemption for Senior Homeowners. Senior Homeowners are paying high taxes they now cannot afford. And do not benefit from most Bonds they can't afford. Give back to those who have contributed and paid the Taxes for what you enjoy today.

The light rail system in Salt Lake City has been planned perfectly to accommodate a central route with multiple stops-a great sample to study and emulate. Constructing large office buildings (> or = 60,000 sq. ft.) to accommodate companies like Amazon, UPS, LinkedIn - businesses that would require computer engineers and other office type employment. Architecture/facades should portray Brentwood in it's beginnings (like the old Hotel and Train Station). Design more than adequate parking structures (like downtown!) and streets wide enough to accommodate added traffic, buses. Be sure to include large promenades along with green stripped bike paths to encourage more pedestrians and bicyclists. Plenty of trellises to provide lots of shade. For restaurants, not franchises, but true farm to fork restaurants to uphold Brentwood's agricultural roots.

Bring in high-tech corporations is welcomed, however, have major concerns about the high density housing will also bring crimes to the peaceful Brentwood, Brentwood does not have enough police force to deal with the potential increase in crime.

What type of future development would you like to see within Priority Area 1?
I would like to see a mix of housing, light industry, entertainment (such as restaurants, bars etc.) and agriculture which is in keeping with the rest of the city. It is a shame that our city's agricultural heritage is being lost to high density housing. I strongly feel that we should not be designing our city's future to cater for BART'S demands of minimum population density so they can make profits at the expense of our city's soul. As other cities have found, with the BART expansions come a decrease in property values and an increase in the crime rate. High density housing only seems to serve over-expansion goals and the feel of the city can never be reclaimed.
