Sierra Club opposes Measure K

The Sierra Club Yolano Group has come out in opposition to Measure K and the building of Target.
This project will congest local roadways with 10,000 additional car trips per day to this site, and result in significant degradation of air quality locally. In the EIR, cumulative impacts on air quality for all criteria pollutants are considered “significant and unavoidable” and the emissions of criteria pollutants are greater with this project than those anticipated under current zoning. These impacts on air quality cannot be mitigated. Many studies have shown that air pollution from traffic is directly linked to increased rates of respiratory and cardiac disease, especially in children and the elderly.
