Say No to the Moratorium

Dear City Council,

I am a resident of the Belle Haven neighborhood and am firmly opposed to
any development moratorium for District 1. I am born and raised in the Bay
Area and these last 20 years have seen the changes that has happened in the
area. I have many friends who are nostalgic for the past and have been
displaced due to rising housing cost and longer commutes. Stopping
development was not the answer in the past and is not the answer today.

I am in support of local development that can bring needed amenities to our
community. While traffic is an issue, we do not need a moratorium on
development to address traffic issues. Focus on the Dumbarton Corridor
Project. The majority of the traffic comes from people commuting to their
jobs in the Peninsula.

Blanket action is not an effective way to address the community's concerns.
Work with the businesses to help mitigate traffic and create sustainable
ways for families to really engage in our neighborhood. Please do not let
perfect be the enemy of good. There is no perfect solution to the issues
facing our community that will leave everyone happy. Please do not freeze
our community for another 2 years in hopes that the need for more
development would disappear or change. Please do not issue a development
moratorium. Our community can benefit so much from it.

Yours truly,
Bonnie Lam
