The 2012 Draft Marin County Housing Element targets Tam Junction with high-density housing and accelerated population growth by including Tam Junction Sites in the Housing Element's Available Land Inventory.
If adopted, the Housing Element would threaten the environment by encouraging development of high density housing near sensitive habitat & endangered species and jeopardize public health, safety & welfare by exacerbating traffic congestion, flooding/ sea level rise, air pollution, earthquake damage, overburdened public services (e.g. overcrowded schools), insufficient infrastructure and quality of life.
Please sign this petition to urge the Marin County Board of Supervisors to ACT NOW to:
1) Remove the Tam Junctions Sites from the 2012 Draft Marin County Housing Element's Available Land Inventory; and
2) Ensure that any proposed development in Tam Valley and Almonte is subject to thorough environmental review and full enforcement of the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), with no exemption or streamlining of CEQA allowed.
This petition will be forwarded to the Marin County Board of Supervisors to send a clear message that the undersigned Marin residents are firm in their commitment to preserve, protect and enhance the Tam Valley and Almonte community.
