No carte blanche building

TempletonSeptember 30, 2013 

A few things trouble me regarding the recent Tribune item “Paso Robles to review housing project,” Sept. 23.

Why is this even being considered given the state of basin overdraft? Why hasn’t the city, like the county, made some effort to limit or curtail development in the heavily overdrawn area depicted in the newest map? If the potential water use for this development has been taken into account in the city’s long-range planning, when was the plan approved?

Certainly, if rural residents cannot build a home on their property because of the critical water issue, developers in nearby Paso Robles shouldn’t have carte blanche to do so.

The Tribune is pleased to provide this opportunity to share information, experiences and observations about what's in the news. Some of the comments may be reprinted elsewhere in the site or in the newspaper. We encourage lively, open debate on the issues of the day, and ask that you refrain from profanity, hate speech, personal comments and remarks that are off point. Thank you for taking the time to offer your thoughts.
