Sierra Club member backs supervisors’ vote

-A +A
Three cheers for supervisors Holmes, Montgomery and Weygandt for upholding the county policy of not allowing development in the flood plain (“Plan rejected to build homes in Roseville-area flood plain,” When you put fill in the flood plain and perch homes on top of it, you reduce the capacity of the flood plain to accommodate high flows, placing homes downstream at greater risk from flooding. Once again we have three supervisors who place the public good paramount. Supervisors Rockholm and Uhler: it’s hard to fathom your votes. Terry Davis, Sierra Club, Auburn
