With the release of Galt's draft General Plan, the community will be asked to comment on just how much or how little it wants Galt to grow in the next 20 years.

The comprehensive document, called Galt General Plan 2030, is a guide to the city's future growth, outlining where and what kind of development should take place within the city limits and land that should be annexed into the city. It also includes traffic and other planning issues.

    Galt Citizen: just what is slow growth? 2% a year? Sounds like your tired of putting up with what you have at the present time, your the first person that wants a wal-mart. The way you make your city sound, its like something out of tobacco road. You either have to lead, follow or get out of the parade all together. There must be enough people in Galt that are willing to do the right thing. wal-mart is not the end of the world, its a great place for people to shop and bring in needed tax dollars at the same time. Get `er built. Now if Lodi would get off the pot and build one, there`s enough people to go around.

    The citizens have spoken. The city council recently appointed were voted in on their slow-growth campaigns. we are tired of the one way streets in this town, overcrowded schools, not enough police officers. not enough places to shop. Bring in Walmart and the tax dollars will come. We need the revenue to infrastructure and to fund more police officers. The recall has no merit.

    Everyone talks about Galt`s flea market, never been there and never will, I just might end up bying something I don`t need and at one time belonged to my neighbor. If people like the idea of leaving Galt in the dust, thats just fine with the business owners in Lodi, they be glad to take their money. And weezer is right, Elk Grove is a prime example of what not to do.

    Wayne Blankenship's suggestion of a European model is a good one. Everything within walking distance. It would be good for people's health and the good it would do for the environment would also provide a health benefit.

    Elk Grove offers a good lesson on irresponsible growth.Moderate your greed.

    Galt has done the same thing as Lodi. Grown beyond its revenue to provide services and infrastructure for all those new residents in those overpriced homes already built in the last 15 years. Those that left the damage behind are the same ones pushing for superWalmart and a sales tax increase to finance yet more developments. The pyramid has topped out there's nowhere to go.
