Habitat/Wildlife: This parcel is oak woodland/coastal prairie which is an important habitat afforded protections, with considerable wildlife use of the site, and unknown presence of rare and endangered species. Further study needs to occur to determine the presence of these species.


Aesthetics: A 40-unit development comprised of ten-3 story buildings would be out of character with this single-family, rural neighborhood, and loom over the street and sedate cemetery. A dense development towering above the adjacent cemetery and funeral home is quite simply poor planning.
