Ed Bogue advised that the Southgate Area Homeowners Association will host a Candidates Night for Hayward City Council on Wednesday, May 2, 2012, 7-9 p.m. at Christ's Community Church, 25927 Kay Avenue (at Calaroga Ave.).

Doug Ligibel thanked the Southern Alameda County Major Crimes Task Force and Hayward PD for the recent arrest of the murderers of Sam Nava and a 14-year old in Alameda County. More volunteers are also needed in the Downtown area with Hayward PD and other programs. Since 2010, he has noticed the Downtown, which now has approximately 100 vacancies, including commercial buildings, deteriorate. There are 10 new foreclosures in his complex, including his immediate neighbor. There is more nuisance behavior/crime which drives customers away - vandalism, public dumping, aggressive pan-handling, drug-use and use of store entrances as latrines. The larger the volunteer force, the greater the likelihood of dealing successfully with such activity.

Jim Drake expressed concern about safety standards associated with the Route 238 Corridor Improvement Project. He totaled his truck against a concrete bull nose at Harder Rd. and Mission Blvd. A neighbor's car was also damaged against the same structure.

Gabriel Hernandez, Hayward Day Labor Center, and several other speakers spoke in support of maintaining CDBG funding for the facility and its services to avoid reducing staffing levels.
