Excellent news. While I am certainly not opposed to development, this was never really viable from the start. To every community and municipality that opposed this proposal publicly. Thanks......It is the way things are supposed to work. Of the People, for the People, by the people.......
Great news!! Thank you to all who opposed it!
Menlo Park Mayor, Kirsten Keith, needs to grow a pair if she wants to be a good, county supervisor. Not commenting on perhaps this county's biggest environmental issue - the Saltworks development, because the developer, DMB, has pulled out, tells me Kirsten will be a fence straddler. She's more than happy to give an interview to USA Today about new MP resident Facebook, though.
Good! It was a stupid idea.
On the one hand, to Cargill's withdrawal of this mega city within the Bay, I say -- it's about time!
***CHEERS! and congrats to those who opposed it.
2. What has been the impact of allowing such a long pendency of this proposal on the City of Redwood City. Looks like a lot of wasted time and attention on a plan everyone could see was DOA as it was way way too big with WAY too many severely harmful impacts. (E.g., anyone could see, even without an EIR that gridlock on 101 would result from putting so many homes so far from the transit corridor.) Thus, it seemed every City in the surrounding area opposed it.
JEERS to the Redwood City Councilpeople who, in their greed, stuck with this ridiculous proposal and allowed their City's staff time to be focused on it rather the many pressing things like getting more housing along the ACTUAL transit corridor.
Hopefully Redwood City will not make the same mistake twice, but Cargill seems hell bent on coming back with a "monster minus something" proposal, so stay tuned and keep your political ammo dry everyone.
Don't miss out on the discussion!
