It’s not too late to stop the bad deal that the Southern California developer wants to sell the City of Richmond. Look at the facts, consider your pocketbook, join the Berkeley residents who oppose this scheme, and let City Council hear your voice!
The key points are:
- Postpone all decisions until the public can participate fully in the review and approval process
- Provide a full financial analysis of the project’s impact on the City’s budget with a strategy for protecting the City’s General Fund
- Reject the City’s latest Draft Subsequent Environmental Impact Report (DSEIR) as inadequate and request a more complete analysis of known traffic, safety and environmental concerns. See Unanswered Questions No.s 6-16 here.
- Let the voters decide – place the Citizen Initiative on the November ballot – whether or not to restrict development to the Winehaven District and create a ridge-to-shoreline park in the southern portion of the property
