PETITION TO STOP MEGAPLEX THEATER
We, the undersigned voting citizens and taxpayers of Alameda oppose the building of a megaplex and six-level parking structure next to the Historic Alameda Theatre in Downtown Alameda.
We believe that the original vision of this community of restoring the Alameda Theater has been lost and replaced with a headlong rush to build an over sized megaplex and garage, with a permanent detrimental impact on Alameda\'s downtown. Such development will create a traffic nightmare, be an eyesore in the heart of our city and destroy Alameda\'s treasured charm.
We are concerned that sensible alternatives to a megaplex have not been given a fair hearing, and that in allowing the current project to move forward the City Council and Planning Board are not acting in the best interest of Alameda\'s citizens, nor are they working for the preservation and beautification of this jewel of the Bay, Alameda.
Therefore, we call for an immediate halt in the development plans, a city wide forum with Mayor, City Council and Planning Board to openly discuss the long-term viability and consequences of a megaplex, and a list of realistic alternatives for a smaller complex involving the existing theater only.
This petition is sponsored by Citizens for Megaplex-Free Alameda, a grassroots citizens\' organization committed to the restoration of the Historic Alameda Theater and opposing the building of a megaplex next door.
