No City in Carmel Valley

No city in Carmel Valley

In reply to Elizabeth King’s Nov. 21 letter, which expressed interest in knowing who is behind Valley Watch, here is some information. Valley Watch is a broad-based coalition of homeowners, shopkeepers, renters and farmers worried about committing themselves to unknown expenditures and restrictions in the future. Much of their information comes from Dr. Lew C. Bauman, director of Public Works of Monterey County; he stated that the roads in Carmel Valley will need more than $100 million in reconstruction and repairs to meet the standards of a city – a coast not addressed by the advocates of cityhood. Reprints of his speech to the Carmel Valley Rotary are available to anyone. Write to Valley Watch, Box 22231, Carmel, CA 93922

Carmel Valley is a rural area, not a city. It makes no sense to impose on it the structure of a city. Cityhood means more traffic, new bureaucracy, more red tape, more politics and new buildings. We do not need more politicians breathing down our necks. We do not need a city in Carmel Valley.
