Save the Yard supporters kick-off signature gathering for new initiative, during Cruise Night, Saturday

By Lee Ballesteros

The Save the Yard campaign to build a Town Square on the former Beede Lumber Yard site in downtown Antioch has begun the effort anew to gather signatures to give the people of Antioch a voice in the decision for the future of this historic site.

Volunteers are needed. The Kick-Off of for signature gathering for the petition will be at this year’s Antioch Cruise Night on October 15, 2016 from 3PM to 11PM.

Dedicated people are needed to help gather signatures and training will be available. Even if you only have an hour of time to give, it would be appreciated. It’ll be a whole lot of fun if you would like to help and have a bit of time to volunteer. You can also just come down to enjoy the event and sign the petition.

The Save the Yard campaign will be collecting signatures over the next couple of months to ensure the people of Antioch have the ability to vote on such an important issue. It is the belief of the Save the Yard committee that this waterfront parcel, located at the entrance to the Historic Rivertown district of Downtown Antioch, should be enhanced to benefit all of our community. The Town Square Initiative has been forced by the City leaders who would rather sell our most valuable asset to a developer for high density housing. Don’t let this happen.

Lend your voice to this pivotal effort. Volunteer, today and help make the Town Square Initiative a success. The Cruise Night on October 15th, from 3PM to 11PM , is just the beginning. If you are able to donate some of your time please contact Antonio Hernandez at (925) 437-2058 or
