Audubon Society agrees with CGF criticism of LAFCO

We at CGF have noted that the failure of Santa Clara County LAFCO has reached a level so that we have "No confidence" in the organization. We're not alone.

The Santa Clara Valley Audubon Society passed the following resolution:

"To direct staff to draft correspondence to San Jose's City Council, Mayor Chuck Reed, the County's Board of Supes, and the City of Mountain View (These are the bodies that have appointed the LAFCO commissioners). Correspondence to cover that we've reviewed the recent action by the Committee for Green Foothills (CGF), and the recent decisions by the LAFCO commission and that we are similarly deeply concerned that the commission's mission to control urban sprawl and protect open space is being seriously undermined and that those who have appointed the commissioners should consider what actions they can take to ensure the Commission performs its mission in the best interests of the the citizens of Santa Clara Co. (or words to that effect)."

We hope that LAFCO and the appointing agencies start to pay attention.
