  1. We must all do our part, to be actively engaged in the world around us, to promote development which is sustainable for generations to come, to only allow development projects that will contribute to our healthy community without burdening our local economy.

  2. Thank you for all this information and a place to share. This is our community and this is how we shape it.

    I think that previous comment illustrates what lack of knowledge leads to. In fact this project is blatantly counter to the City’s General Plan and the compromises the character I, and most people I know who live here, want to see develop in Petaluma.
    Most valid studies point to the fact that despite the possible sales tax revenue it might generate short term, long term, big box shopping centers drive out local businesses, lower the average salary of th city’s employees, congests traffic , and stresses and raises the cost of local public services.
    I am for keeping Petaluma – Petaluma USA, not anywhere USA., sustainability not short term trendiness, and architectural character rather than urban blight.
    This website is about thoughtful planning which includes not LA style strip-malls designed for short term international corporate profit with little or no concern for local quality of life.
