Carmel Pine Cone – Oct. 16, 2009

Dear Editor,

No increase in taxes?
No Development! No Quail Lodge! No Tehama! No
Santa Lucia Preserve!

Has anyone else noticed the amazing similarity between
the large green signs that urge “Yes on Proposition G”, and a
hundred dollar bill?

Coincidence? Highly unlikely, given no development,
reduced property values, reduced revenues and therefore no
new business in Carmel Valley! Just take a trip through the
village and look at the empty storefronts and offices, or the
empty spaces at the Crossroads, the Barnyard or even Mid
Valley Center. If this area cannot support small businesses, it
cannot support a town. The Carmel Unified School District
also has no business endorsing any political proposition.
Stick to the education of our kids please!

Some things we might look forward to with incorporation
are sewers and low income housing in numbers mandated by
state government, requiring a monstrous construction project
and the lengthy disruption of our single road in and out;
reduced law enforcement and endless wrangling to get anything
built are also practically a certainty. If you think it’s
bad now folks, just wait!

Seriously, we are in perilous times and this is no time to
formulate a new city or town, especially since once done, it
cannot be undone, which is something no one seems to have
mentioned in all of the literature urging incorporation. For
concerned people, “No on Proposition G” seems to be the
only sensible answer for now.

If we want different representation, then we need to exercise
our rights and attend the supervisors’ meetings, formulate
plans of action, and in general CARE about our area and
DO something about it! Apathy never gets the job done.

Cheri Gayman,
Carmel Valley
