Letter: Cargill plan not best use of tidal landsCargill's proposal to develop the salt ponds in Redwood City is an inappropriate use of this invaluable shoreline.
This land is best left undeveloped, with the potential to be returned to tidal marshes. Such use would be in the best interests of Peninsula residents. It would aid in mitigating rising sea levels, which are occurring due to global warming. There is no freshwater available for developing homes to house 30,000 new residents. It is irresponsible to consider filling San Francisco Bay, after so many decades of local efforts to stop filling in this precious resource.
