We've lived here 32 years and have watched the devastating impact of rampant tourism on our beautiful valley. We fear it has passed the tipping point.

I'm signing this because I agree with Dad that we need to slow the development and save these poor innocent animals from not having a home permanently. Dad loves his beavers. They need a place to live and how many more homes and restaurants and stores does Napa really need? Also, we don't need to tear down riding places for horse lovers either. Just stand with me and Dad and say no to the big developers that come from big cities to steal everything from what this town has to offer and who needs another Wendy's or Panera? We have enough. We don't need anymore.

Number of reasons - traffic coming into and departing Napa, over crowding of our favorite places to visit and hang out, forever altering the reason we call Napa home

Traffic in and out of Napa is horrendous. The majority of the hospitality workers cannot even afford to live in Napa, where is their housing? Have you ever tried driving into Napa from Am Can/Vallejo in the morning or leave after 3pm, it's worse than some Southern California freeways. Soscol Avenue is congested all day long. If you build it they will come, is not necessarily a good thing. I grew up in this town & my mother still resides in the home we were raised. I understand that Napa will never be what it used to be (a town for the people) and I accept that, but too much growth can be detrimental. Hotels are not filled to capacity now, what's going to happen when hundreds more rooms are added? The growth needs to slow down.

The negative impact on established neighborhoods, the increased traffic and noise pollution are onerous.
There should have been a vote on this!

It would be better if there was more of an effort out towards environmental conservation. Napa has diverse wildlife, a recovering Napa River & residents who enjoy living here. While most residents love Napa, it seems like the powers that be would rather have tourist dollars, than care about resident's concerns. Napa is a beautiful place & I want it to stay that way.

Once you grow too big you cant go back. Im also thinking that all this growth isnt going to being financial viability the commission thinks it will, especially during the slow season when they have to rely on locals (who opposed the projects) for their revenue.
