Re: “Popular Fremont Hiking Spot for Selfies Prompts Parking Lot on Sacred Land

Ok, let's get EBRPD to amend Ordinance 38 to ban cameras on Mission Peak. If there are no pictures taken, then is it okay to build the parking lot?

I'd also like someone to post a link to the archeological survey of the land at Option A so that it is clear what particular cultural significance is at this site.

Re: “Popular Fremont Hiking Spot for Selfies Prompts Parking Lot on Sacred Land

Mr Saijan, there used to be plenty of parking on the streets, but it is now mostly restricted to residential permit holders on the weekend. Perhaps the City should open Weibel Dr and then the parking lot may be reconsidered. Firebert, you can use the trails you prefer --it seems you don't like Mission Peak, but that doesn't mean others share your tastes. Please also explain what pictures are acceptable; it may be possible to get rules added to ordinance 38 and to hell with the First Amendment.

I'd like to use Vargas Plateau instead if driving out of my neighborhood to use Mission Peak, but the park district failed to convince a judge that they completed work as per a 2012 lawsuit settlement. Nevertheless, the plaintiffs offered to allow the park to open with the lower access points while the remaining issues were litigated. The Park District considers this favoritism even though anyone can park on the adjacent streets and use these access points. Somehow the EBRPD funding permit parking is not? The EBRPD has some pretty twisted logic. I'm convinced, after waiting more than 10 years for Vargas Plateau, that the District's senior staff prefers land museums and litigation over park access.

Re: “Popular Fremont Hiking Spot for Selfies Prompts Parking Lot on Sacred Land

I agree with the neighbors who object to the parking lot at option A and cite their concerns about the potential impact on Ohlone cultural artifacts. In fact I suggest they demonstrate their commitment by vacating their homes (which are also likely to be built over Ohlone sites) and restore their property to a natural state.
