The Cannery isn’t a great fit

By
From page A6 | November 19, 2013 |

I just knew that The Cannery would get the OK. The developers of The Cannery have the time and the patience. They have the lawyers on call. They have the planners who make small changes They have the public relations agencies. And they keep scratching until they get what they want.

All of a sudden, our paper has this big headline,”The Cannery: a great fit for Davis.” Sadly, I am old and somewhat cynical. I do not think it is such a great fit. When I Iook at a map, The Cannery is a definite “stick on” and “stick out.” There are few roadways out of The Cannery. Imagine the traffic going out or coming home at night or the parents taking children to school. I have read the articles in The Enterprise and the solutions are flimsy and inadequate.

The traffic on East Covell Boulevard and on Pole Line Road is bad now. I have been at Nugget Market in the Oak Tree Plaza when every driveway at the mall had at least one car waiting to enter or leave the mall. And Covell and Pole Line were lined with traffic waiting at the traffic signals.

And now we will have The Cannery. The construction alone will be awful with the additional trucks and noise. But when the construction is completed, it is claimed that there will be additional traffic of at least 500 cars a day, not to speak of the service vehicles and business vehicles. That is not a great fit for those of us who live here.

Perhaps The Great Fit refers to the owners of the Oak Tree Plaza and Nugget Market? Perhaps it refers to the temporary jobs in the construction. When I think about it, those workers will see this lovely town and want to move here — no problem, there is more land right next door to The Cannery. And the developers could start scratching anew!
