Concerns about The Cannery

By
From page A6 | November 08, 2013 | 1 Comment

The following is a copy of a letter to the Davis City Council:

I live two blocks from the proposed Cannery development site and am against it in the present form for several reasons:

*  Limited access in and out (I have three streets to leave and return to my house located on one of the shortest streets in Davis);

* Not friendly to people who bike or have children (schools, access);

* Removal of mature trees is a detriment to existing wildlife habitat;

* Increased traffic on Covell Boulevard; and

* Limited housing possibilities for low-income folks

Please consider these factors very carefully.

    Ann, While I agree with most of your concerns about the Cannery project, the last two items on your list don't feel quite right. It is inevitable that adding to the housing stock of Davis will increase traffic on nearby streets. I'm not sure that much can be done about that. As for there being limited options for low-income folks... well that is always going to be an issue in a town that so severely restricts new housing. And, if the Cannery project were to add more high density housing, in order to increase the low income possiblities, then you would get even more of that dreaded traffic increase along Covell. And I don't think most Davis residents want the Cannery project to be any more high density than it already is. But, I agree with you about the access points, bike and school access friendliness of the project and the need to preserve as many of the mature trees as possible. Hopefully, the developer will listen to these concerns.
