Bay Area Has Highest Roadkill In All of CA. Build Barriers To Protect The Wildlife!
Did you know that more driving accidents involve hitting wildlife than other vehicles in the Bay Area? The Bay Area has one of the highest roadkill rates in all of California. With the increase of construction all across the bay, animals are kicked out of their homes and forced into streets and highways where they meet their untimely death.The Bay Area is know for the preservation of land and abundance of national parks like Muir Woods, Point Reyes, Golden Gate National Recreation Area, etc, so why haven't we done anything about the creatures that live in them? Building barriers around roads and highways to protect wildlife would not only save thousands to millions of animals but it will also save people's lives. Road accidents are dangerous, many killing or hurting the people involved. According to SFGate in 2016 "California spent $276 million on vehicle damage, emergency response, injuries and insurance associated with animal collisions."Help end the endless amount of wildlife killed in the Bay Area by supporting the construction of barriers along roads and highways. Not only will this save animals, and humans, but it will also save money by helping cut the $276 million dollars spent in emergency response due to animal collisions. Sign Now!
Petition to Supervisor Dennis Rodoni
Save The Last Resort -- A Working Model of Sustainability in Marin County
Dear Supervisor Rodoni, We immensely appreciate your recent efforts to, at long last, reach a compromise that preserves The Last Resort (http://thelastresortlagunitas.org) David Lee Hoffman's property, as a historic landmark. As the process of working with David progresses, we must express the imperative to reinstate Marin County's own Architectural Commission's ruling that David's site is historically important. This would allow the use of the California Historic Building Code as a guideline and protections this code offers. Reinstating the Commission's ruling is ethical and allows for long-awaited progress in complying with reasonable code upgrades and an ultimate resolution. We do not want to lose The Last Resort, nor do we want to lose David as a friend, neighbor, and contributor to our community. We feel that David is a visionary who, during the past 40 years, has created solutions to climate change issues that we face as a global community. These solutions lie in the very structures and systems that stand to be destroyed if the Commission's unanimous ruling continues to be discounted or ignored. We believe the demolition of his work would severely endanger the health, safety, beauty and tranquility of Marin County - and the potential for large-scale solutions that David's innovation provides. We request that Marin County, through their receiver, reinstate their own Commission's unanimous ruling, which declared that David's property deserves local historic status. You, too, recently stated in your January 31, 2017 letter to the appointed receiver, “Furthermore, please consider this an official request from my office to include architectural and cultural value determinations on the Hoffman property in your final recommendations.” The reinstatement of the County Architectural Commission ruling would be the final step in bringing closure to the issue of preserving as much of David’s site as possible without interfering with the work of the receiver. We believe that if David loses, we all lose -- and we believe the solution is outlined by the steps in this petition. We are truly thankful to have you addressing these issues. By signing this petition we support the reinstatement of the Marin County Architectural Commission resolution that all 36 structures on the 2-acre property of David Lee Hoffman in Lagunitas constitute a cultural and historic landmark of local importance. Signed,
