Martinez……. The city of the “Tree if Spirit”! The residential parts of Martinez are nice but the downtown is terrible in spite of spending millions of redevelopment funds to fix it up. The city council should be held accountable for their terrible job. Vice mayor Mark Ross spends his time on the BAAQMD board banning wood fires, instead of working to make downtown Martinez better. Without the courts and the county offices, Martinez downtown wouldn’t exist

Nothing is happening in Martinez. Nothing ever new! We need to bring the PH City Council to Martinez so that we can improve Martinez. Look how PH is booming and Mtz is full of NOTHING. Without the County offices and the courts Martinez would be a ghost town. Please find new blood to run our City so we can GROW!

I am scared for our city. So many worked so hard to bring it from a virtual ghost town in 1992 to a charming Main Street again and thriving, to this today. If ever we need a serious shake up, scrap MSM, change at city hall, it is NOW! Sorry to be blunt, but we need bluntness right now. This is bad. Empty stores all along Main Street and we are in some in serious trouble.

Problem is: Downtown is a PIA to get to. Pine St, Nope. Pacheco Blvd, Nope (45mph is okay, and then to 25mph ~ that’s weak!). Alhambra Ave, Too many lights and too busy / confusing near the Hospital and School Crosswalks, I’m surprised No pedestrians have been hit. Marina Vista, maybe – but speed limit needs to be raised.
Oh, and building new Apartments Downtown – I hope they’re disclosing to the New renters all of the railroad traffic and that Henry the Hornblower Loves to Get Exited with the Horn at 2:30 AM on the Union Pacific local!! There’s Nobody down there at that time ~ Dude is being DISRESPECTFUL!

Dont even think of patronizing down town Martinez. DUI checks, stay away. Bad cop town.
