Re "Should county approve Cordova Hills?" (Viewpoints, Jan. 27): The proposed 2,700-acre Cordova Hills development project does not comply with Sacramento's regional transportation plan. And the transportation plan barely meets state requirements for limiting greenhouse gas emissions as it is. Approval of the Cordova Hills project will make it very unlikely that the region could realistically reach its 2035 GHG reduction target. Failing to meet GHG state reduction requirements threatens Sacramento County's eligibility for much needed federal and state transportation funds. The project's environmental impact on the region is unnecessary and potentially devastating. The project's developers admit that growth projections are uncertain and while the plan touts the cornerstone of a university, no university has committed to this project. This project does not comply with the regional transportation plan and would negatively impact Sacramento County financially and environmentally. The Board of Supervisors should say no to this poorly planned project.
