California's stealth initiative on land use: Proposition 90

Proposition 90 will destroy years of environmental progress, as well as destroy any meaningful local government control over land use within its jurisdiction. It is a stealth attack on our future. This article (the link) from the SF Chronicle discusses some of the implications of this developer/radical right wing attack on the environment.

Besides that, taking away zoning laws will end up DIMINISHING your property values. A gravel mine next to your farm? Think again.

This is nothing more than a huge greed-grab by a very powerful few to the detriment of entire communities and most individuals. It makes a mockery of local governments, long range planning, and of democratic processes. It needs to be defeated.
