Video: Gary Vlahakis, May 11, 2012. You might get a better idea of the scale of the controversial 16-lot subdivision in the Semi Tropic Spiritualists' Tract in relation to the Red Tailed Hawk nest, as the camera zooms in from across the 2 Freeway. (Best viewed in full screen.)
Since ours are old hillside neighborhoods, with plenty of mature trees to block the view, it's difficult to get the entire property in one shot. Those new homeowners in Semi Tropic will have unobstructed views of the 2 Freeway for decades.
On a side note, as of last week, the grading contractor is doing a better job of controlling the dust with constant wetting. Breathing is a somewhat easier for neighbors on the Corralitas side of the 2 Freeway. The winds still kick up every afternoon blowing dirt in our direction.
