It's finally Orinda's turn to try and make the grade.
This summer, the people of Lamorinda have spoken, and Lafayette and Moraga have been graded, both receiving a majority of "B’s" as the local citizenry evaluates life in LaMo.
Now it’s Orinda’s turn to be graded, so pull out your gold stars and red pens, because Lamorinda Patch is asking you to give Orinda a grade. What do you think of Orinda as a city? How’s the livability? The city council? The coffee shop options?
Orinda can be quiet, but we have heard some complaints lately.
Detiorating roads is a hot topic around town, and the city council recently voted to adopt a 10 year Roads and Drains Maintenance and Repair Plan, which would start to deal with the problem.
Orinda's Gold Rush-era has also been getting a little rundown lately, with the Friends of the Joaquin Moraga Adobe hoping to turn the historic building into a museum, while a developer plans to build a subdivision on the land and use the building for something else.
Orinda employees also recently gave the city council a vote of “no confidence” after union discussions regarding the reorganization of different city departments turned sour. And then, of course, there are the leaf blowers...
So, what are your issues with Orinda? Do you have any? Let us know by voting in the poll below, and adding any thoughts you have in the comments section.
