… sad to see what has been done to the city… with virtually no infrastructure improvement… city was built for 20-25,000 peole …now population is 70,000 as of 2 yrs ago ….. maybe 73,000 now …. at least 3x what it was designed and planned for – not including through traffic from east county….

Nice video, but they didn’t drive by one of my favorite restaurants. Le Virage French restaurant, it was located north of Ygnacio Valley Blvd on N Main St. and was a Walnut Creek landmark with its painted murals. Towards the end of the video she repeatedly said Heather Farms, as a resident of Walnut Creek, she should know it’s Heather Farm.

Cleaner, less populated, no graffiti and homeless. I don’t recall break-ins, looting and murders back then. So much for our community and state “leaders”.

Where are all the bro’s with their neck tattoos, and “Affliction” shirts?

Where are all the drunk girls with their purses filled with fluffy rat dogs and their butt cheeks hanging out of their skirts?
