Recent fires in Northern California and extreme weather events around the world raised members concerns about evacuating safely from Avila Valley. CC4A exists because of this issue. Adding 1500 homes in Wild Cherry Canyon was (and is) hugely concerning since our road out of town is already frequently backed up. We live with multiple threats that could cause an evacuation and as we all know, hundreds of cars leaving at once will not exit the valley quickly.
The other part of our mission statement along with preserving the safety of Avila is protecting the natural environment and accessibility. Solutions to safety cannot come at the expense of the natural environment and accessibility. A double-wide or double-decker freeway destroying the ecosystem around San Luis Obispo Creek is not a favored solution. Limited access to the beach due to impacted roadways is a losing deal for all involved.
These core issues will continue to be stressed in communications with the Board of Supervisors and County Planning.
