In the wake of the major residential project Quarry Falls the city wants to pave a road over open space connecting Phyllis Place to the site (this Quarry Falls link has an 8.24 MB file). Despite significant citizen and councilmember objections the city approved Quarry Falls, a large-scale residential development impacting several coastal sage scrub acres.
"It appears that the" environmental impacts would be "Land Use, Transportation/Circulation, Air Quality, Biological Resources, Geologic Conditions, Greenhouse Gas Emissions," "Historical Resources (Archaeology), Hydrology, Noise, Paleontological Resources," "Visual Effects and Neighborhood Character, Water Quality, and Cumulative Effects."
I repeat that there is plenty of vacant housing for various living situations here. We never needed or wanted Quarry Falls, why "increase connectivity" to it?
