Bay Area Citizens needs your help

On behalf of our friends at Bay Area Citizens, we are asking that you consider a meaningful donation to challenge Plan Bay Area and its draft environmental impact report through fair and objective reports by top national experts.  The Plan defies logic and defiles small- to medium-sized towns like ours, and it is up to the citizens themselves to provide this essential analysis.  

However, the deadline is rapidly approaching and Bay Area Citizens needs funding right away.  We know that everyone’s financial situation is different.  If your budget is tight, please consider a donation of $50 or $100.  If you have the funds available, please join with your neighbors who have donated $250, $500, or $1,000.

In order to fully fund these expert reports, however, Bay Area Citizens also needs larger donations in the range of $2,500 or $5,000, and if you are in a position to do so, we hope you will consider making a donation of this size.

Everyone’s help counts here, and together we can do this.

Thank you for your consideration,

Orinda Watch

PS here are the instructions on how to donate...see below
I am writing to ask that you consider donating generously to helping fund expert reports to challenge Plan Bay Area's draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR). The draft EIR will be released on March 29, and we will have 45 days to submit comments.

The Plan appears to be based on deeply flawed models, forecasts, and assumptions. Bay Area Citizens has identified a number of top national experts in land use, transportation, and the environment who are willing to work with us. Our expert reports will provide the analytically-sound, empirically-based assessment of the Plan and its assumptions that ABAG and MTC should be providing, but aren't.

These reports are essential to all the public for its informed decision making on the Plan.  They are also necessary if we should decide to file suit against the Plan after it is adopted.
