C.V. majority against incorporation

Monterey Herald, July 11, 2009

Quite a few letters to The Herald imply the majority of Carmel Valley residents want to incorporate.

That is far from the truth!. C.V. would be the second largest city in Monterey County with the smallest density to support it. C.V. would be turned into a 44-square-mile city with over 140 miles of roads to maintain. This annual maintenance, plus all the other expenses of a new city, would put us in the red in very short time.

The unstable economy clearly tells us that this is not the time to incorporate Carmel Valley, if there ever is a time. As so well stated by several members of LAFCO, it would be the first and ultimate duties of city officials to bring in revenue to support a city. This would mean more building, not less. It would be counter-productive to incorporate if you sincerely want to keep the rural complexion of Carmel Valley. Where will you build the low-cost housing, which would be required by the state?

Don't let the proponents of incorporation act as though they speak for all of us that live in Carmel Valley!
