In the weekly feature called "e-views," we invite readers to answer a question via email or on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/BrentwoodNews.
Last week's question:
The Pittsburg City Council has delayed deciding on a 1.7-mile-long road to relieve traffic congestion south of Buchanan Road in response to concerns that the project will ruin pristine hillside land and views. Proponents, meanwhile, say the extension to James Donlon Boulevard is needed to take commute traffic off Buchanan Road in Pittsburg. What do you think? Should the extension be built?
NO. As soon as you build a road more houses will follow.
THERE'S always a traffic jam from A street to Railroad. That's Antioch life. LOL

IF THEY build it, the second it gets backed up, people will just pass it and take Buchanan Road anyway! So, there will be two roads full of cars.
I AM VERY pleased to know the Pittsburg City Council has delayed the decision to extend James Donlon Boulevard in fear of what it would do to the pristine beauty of our foothills and views.
However, I am confused when they allow Albert Seeno to build nearly 400 homes in these same foothills with plans to build 1,000. Do they really think that looking at all these particleboard houses won't effect the beauty of this landscape? Well duh! It will! I think perhaps our City Council speaks with a forked tongue. Do not extend the road. Extend BART all the way to Brentwood since we paid for it. Then an extension won't be necessary.
This week's question:
What do you think your city can or should do about the homeless people hanging out on city streets?
