Letter to the Editor: Move forward on Weapons Station

CONCORD, CA (Sept. 18, 2022) — I’m a senior citizen who has been a Concord homeowner for forty years. I love this city, its central location, its dog parks and opportunities for seniors.

One thing we need more of is affordable housing for our older population. Walnut Creek has Rossmoor – it would be really great to have a senior housing community at the proposed Concord Naval Weapons Station location.

I totally support this project moving forward, especially if it includes affordable senior housing, walking paths to keep us healthy and active, and I love that the location will be close to BART for those of us who have limited driving abilities. It’s also close to John Muir/Mt. Diablo Hospital for those of us with health issues.

We need to get this project going right away. I encourage other senior residents to join me in supporting our city’s moving forward with the Naval Weapons Station project.

— Greg Kremenliev, Concord
