Should we allow family and friends to be trapped during lethal wildfire evacuations in trade for builder profits, increased county taxes/permit fees, or leadership’s personal gain? NIMBY.
Should we allow people to be incinerated like the 85 burnt alive because Paradise, California City Planners, against Grand Jury recommendations, built restrictions to their escape routes? NIMBY.
Should we allow people to be burned to death like the (93 corpses and counting) people of Lahaina’s tropical island last week? They have an ocean to jump into, but could not survive even while having that massive water safety sanctuary. Should we allow Sonoma County management to create two projects with higher potential for a larger disaster? NIMBY.
Permit Sonoma/Sonoma County management’s proposals to add hundreds of homes plus thousands of cars and trucks at SDC and Hanna Center will create huge defenseless wildfire traffic jam deathtraps on Arnold Drive and Sonoma Mountain. Wildfire safety is clearly not their concern. Allow this willful criminal negligence on Sonoma Mountain? NIMBY.
All it takes is a spark in the wind, and these unsafe designs become inescapable during an inferno.
Sonoma County Planners clearly have not learned a thing from people being cremated alive in recent wildfires. Their disinformation reflects that fact in their reckless proposals. Should we let them build wildfire deathtraps just because they irresponsibly tell us it won’t happen here, again? Not in OUR Backyard.
