NO - NO - NO - NO

Leave the area along. There is a traffic problem NOW which will be increased with this project(s).

The semiconductor industry got its start with Shockley Semiconductor at 391 San Antonia Road. This was the start of Siliocn Valley. Our area has been a home for innovation. Well thought out and well planned incubators for start-up companies in the East Meadow Circle area makes sense.

I like the staff proposal to bring industry to East Meadow Circle. Occupancy rates are rising and if we don't plan ahead, research and development will have to go elsewhere soon. The road has to be improved, but that can surely be done.
