What are your opinions of the bill, authored by Sen. Steinberg, that the Gov. signed & how will this affect urban sprawl in the Natomas area?

Here's a link to SB 375:

We have someone from Steinberg's office here, so hopefully they can weigh in and answer any questions you may have ;)

Well in Natomas I think its a nonissue. The levees need to be upgraded before they can build any more out here. That probably won't happen for several more years.

It appears at first glance to be a land grab by Greenies... While not stating it explicitly in the language of the bill, it will in effect transfer local development and planning decisions to a "Regional Targets Advisory Committee" very similar to many communist and socialist countries. It will take away many private property rights to those who own land.

That being said...Urban Sprawl can be a problem IF it paves over fertile farmland needed for agriculture. Clearly there is more short term profit in development than in farming. Farming though is a national security interest.

So taking it as a whole I am ambivalent on this new law, and I will wait and see what happens. 

This law will not reduce global carbon emissions as is it's stated goal, the real goal is to control private property.  Even If the entire united states ceased using internal combustion engines, China, India and Russia, who have over half the earths population, will continue to fill our atmosphere with carbon emissions. 

This bill will do nothing to mandate mass transit or raising the carbon emission standards for automobiles.  So in effect..it does nothing except drive up property values in areas that are deemed acceptable to the "Commission" for development. 

I suspect certain developers like Phil Angelides and his family the Tsakopoulos Mob (They own Steinberg/Fargo et al.. outright) have gobbled up all the available land in areas  considered "developable" by the Commission in the Central Valley. Someone should investigate this.

Isn't there a moratorium on new building/construction projects in the Natomas area due to the levees anyhow?  (I'm not sure and I may be wrong - hence why I am asking.)
