Scale down, less is better

Please, not four lanes through Grass Valley. Numbers could be wrong, but even 100 more cars in the Brunswick Basin or at Idaho-Maryland and Mill Street at noon, three o’clock or five p.m. means no one goes anywhere. I suggest that we only vote for the city officials who commit to support the “General Growth Plan,” I will.

We have great contractors in this area who build quality homes permitted by the General Plan. Let’s continue with the General Plan and shelve the massive developments until the developers realize changes need to be made in their plans to accommodate “quality of life.” Scale down. Do we need all this growth? Less is better.
