Development topic of incorporation

Monterey Herald -- Oct. 28, 2009

The question of whether or not we should have a city/town of Carmel Valley comes down to the issue of development and who is best suited to control it.

The mailer we received shows our hillsides covered with homes, a la San Jose, to attempt to convince us that this will be our fate and they can save us. They point to 300 homes proposed at Rancho Canada and the problems this growth may cause. Again they lead us to believe that if we just trust them, no development will happen, even on the smaller scale proposed by Clint Eastwood.

Now, the State Water Resources Control Board has decided to reduce our water allocation. This may result in all Peninsula residents being subject to rationing. Just where is the water going to come from for development?

Why do we need this? Can we afford another bureaucracy which will accomplish little except to burden us with higher costs, additional regulations, and the inevitable lawsuits if they try to thwart development that is reasonable and abides by environmental and other restrictions?

Vote no on incorporation.
