Opposition Mounts to Cargill's Redwood City Salt Pond Plan

Good news! Minnesota-based agribusiness giant Cargill's plan to build a new city on more than 1,400 acres of restorable Bayfront salt ponds in Redwood City is being met with GROWING OPPOSITION on the Peninsula.

To bring you up to speed โ€“ in May 2009, Cargill's development partner, Arizona-based luxury home builder DMB Associates, submitted its proposal to fill the salt ponds with up to 12,000 units of housing. Environmentalists widely agree that Cargill's massive development is the biggest current threat to the Bay. And in the past few months the opposition has rapidly spread far beyond a broad environmental base to include industry, neighboring cities and a candidate for the California Assembly.

The bottom line? Cargill should NOT pave our Bay!
