San Francisco Bay is our natural treasure, and it is essential that we protect and restore it toensure that the Bay Area is a healthy place to live.The era of filling in San Francisco Bay is over – we stopped that destruction forty years ago.The bay’s salt ponds provide the best opportunity to restore a portion of the 150,000 of acresof valuable wetlands destroyed by previous generations.But now, a developer wants to turn back the clock, by proposing a massive development on1,400 acres of restorable salt ponds in Redwood City. Nothing so breathtaking in size or misguided in scope has been proposed in half a century.Salt ponds are not land to be paved – they are part of San Francisco Bay to be restored totidal marsh for wildlife habitat, natural flood protection for our communities, cleaner water, andrecreation areas for everyone to enjoy.The Bay Area should accommodate growth with truly sustainable development that preservesthe open space needed for our economy and quality of life. The Bay Area requires morehousing near existing transit corridors and services, like in downtown Redwood City.As current and former elected officials, we understand the pressures cities face and howessential San Francisco Bay is to our region. The bay belongs to all of us, and we all mustprotect it. We urge you to join us in actively opposing this project to develop on San FranciscoBay salt ponds.Sincerely,
