Co-chairwomen of the petition drive Vicki Crockett and Barbara Munkner say they're on a roll.
"More than three-quarters of the people we've approached agree to sign the petition. They ask good questions and see the real benefits of incorporation right away," Munkner said.
The Alamo Incorporation Movement must obtain signatures from 25 percent of registered voters in Alamo - or 2,500 - in six months. And they are poised to gather 3,000 to assure that all names are Alamo residents and can be verified.
Chris Kenber, spokesman for the incorporation movement, said to him signing the petition is a no-brainer. It doesn't advocate Alamo's cityhood, it just advocates knowing more about Alamo's cityhood, he explained.
The LAFCO study takes one year to complete and if the agency gives Alamo the go-ahead, then more than 50 percent of the voters must support incorporation for it to pass. The vote would take place in spring 2009.
