Could you put regular details of the development plan in the Point Reyes Light or Marin Independent Journal? This comment section is a very few people - and we don't even get details. How about a few public meetings in the review process?

Creekside is the same bland colonial naming that gave us First Valley and Second Valley. Please consider Native naming for all features.

Honestly there should be NO pool proposal in a drought area. I hope this is a joke. NO public funds should ever be spent on a swimming pool - the cost and liability issues alone should cancel that idea.

I think that it is essential to end the practice of naming places after recent notable white people. It is wonderful that your grandfather got this honor for so long. Renaming places to honor the original history of Native peoples is long overdue. Keeping colonial names is unacceptable as we face the wider history of this area. Affordable housing is an equity and justice issue. So too should the naming reflect equity and justice in addressing the theft of these lands and tragic genocide for "development" across several centuries. This "development" needs to redress some of those injustices. We can start by using Native Miwok place names.

Additionally I think that all new housing projects in PR peninsula should appropriate several to Native Americans who were displaced from this land. This is a conversation that gets ignored in the "local history" that only counts ranching and Ag as "historical." All public housing projects need to start including Native American residents who whose lands were stolen fir US to "develop." Let's not ignore that essential truth of development now.
