Letters to the Editor: Feb. 27 - March 1

To think that a road will be scratched up the hill to the city limits by the developers to support the building of two large south-facing homes should have General Vallejo turning over in his grave. A hundred aged trees are slated to be cut down for this enterprise, although the developer claims some will be replanted. Will these trees in anyway recapture the groves of native oaks, madrones, manzanitas, which cover the hillside?

This plan got pushed through a now defunct Planning Commission in 2017. Over 1,000 persons have signed a petition opposing this development and supporting a formal appeal to the City Council to have the reconstituted Planning Commission revisit the plan. There is no reason under God’s heaven why the planned houses can’t be built on the same lots at the base of Schocken Hill. That placement would then preserve the beauty of the hillside, and let whoever resides there also enjoy the existing hillside as it so significantly is a backdrop to the town of Sonoma.

You can make your opinion heard at the Council meeting, 5 p.m., Thursday, March 1.
