The LCP is 475 pages long and not an easy read. 6 weeks for public review before the couple of public workshops is NOT enough time. The first LCP had 95 people, 5 Technical Committees (scientific), 4 Citizen committees, and took 4 years . WHAT”‘S THE RUSH?Subject: Fwd: If you care about the Sonoma Coast, it’s time to speak up–our Local Coastal Plan Update is forging ahead without us.
I apologize for cross-postings of the following message.If you live locally and value the coastline — as ecologically compromised as humans have already rendered it — the revised Local Coastal Plan (LCP) in its current state will not benefit the coast, its environment, its wildlife, water or air quality, or people. As with so many issues in this money-deranged, neoliberal-crazed, economics-only, myopic political maelstrom, all officials and their corporate backers do is tout what will line their pockets with profits of yet more environmental destruction.
Please read the revised LCP – available at local Sonoma County library branches and at some post offices, as well as on-linehttps://sonomacounty.ca.gov/PRMD/Long-Range-Plans?Local-Coastal-Program/Public-Revierw-Draft/#separateSectionsand participate in the public meetings on the coast and in Santa Rosa.
The Sonoma Coast is NOT for sale or more development!Peter
