Proposed Deer Creek II a concern

You should be concerned about the proposed Deer Creek Park II Project.

Deer Creek Park II is a misleading name. The proposed project is not anything like Deer Creek Park I. The proposed project calls for 193 3clustered housing² units with an 18-acre leach field.

The obvious impacts will be on water and air quality, and traffic flow. Other impacts include noise and ambient light pollution, destruction of wildlife habitat, and loss of tree and plant cover. In my opinion, the plan lacks an adequate open space/green belt provision. The owner would retain logging rights beyond the clustered housing site.

The EIR Report will soon be available for you to read and the public comment period will follow. To learn more about Terra Alta Development1s proposed project and to see the project site map, go to .
