community speaks out following the sale of Eden Land | Livermore News

LIVERMORE – Residents of Livermore criticized their town council on Tuesday night for the decision to sell the former Lucky supermarket site to Eden Housing despite continued opposition to its town center project.

Seventeen speakers, along with 10 residents who submitted written comments ahead of the council meeting, berated council for advancing Eden’s plan for a 130-unit, 4-story affordable housing project, while pushing back the more than 8,000 residents who have signed petitions demanding a public vote. After receiving the notice from the city attorney, the city clerk had refused to process the referendum.
