The proponents of the Oak Grove development want you to believe that none of the mature oak trees will be removed as part of their development. Consider the following: their initial ballot argument stated that no trees will be removed. Then, in their subsequent ballot argument rebuttal, they indicated that 58 trees will be removed. However, they failed to mention that the 58 trees are only for the construction of roads -- it is still unknown how many trees will be eliminated to build the houses. Furthermore, the plan doesn't take into account fire safety requirements that the area around the home must be free of trees and shrubs -- that could require the elimination of still more trees. Even the city staff estimates a higher number of oak trees will be removed but their estimate is based on an outdated plan that doesn't include the developer's revised location of new homes. In the end, nobody really knows how many trees will be removed for this project. Isn't that an important detail to confirm before this election? Save the trees, save the ridgelines, save the hills, vote "no" on D. For more information go to www.savepleasantonhills.com.
