Letter: Saltworks developer should abandon project

The developers' plans for the Saltworks project in Redwood City should be abandoned now. Why?

Recently they abrogated their commitment to traffic mitigation by eliminating vehicular traffic on one of three ingress/egress points which will severely impact Highway 101 and surface street traffic. Earlier it was announced their plan to bring water in from Kern County isn't supported by the two water agencies that would have to approve it.

This site should be returned to baylands. The only good thing about this project is the jobs it has created for all the consultants and DMB, the developer. I guess that's something.
