The Tiburon Peninsula basically has one lane in and one lane out. With the Mallard Pointe Project, hundreds of additional cars coming and going every day would have a dramatic impact on our quality of life and pose a safety threat to our community. We are already experiencing longer time periods where traffic slows to a crawl on Tiburon Boulevard, both in the mornings and afternoons during the week. Residents are expressing concerns about being trapped in the event of an evacuation due to earthquakes, fires, floods, or health emergencies.
Residents are also concerned about increased congestion on Community Road and San Rafael Avenue. It’s hard enough today to drive from Mallard Road to Tiburon Boulevard during peak hours. The proposed demolition and redevelopment project would only make matters worse.
The increased number of cars and deliveries that would result from the proposed demolition and redevelopment project would inevitably make it harder (if not altogether impossible) for the myriad of people that come daily to Community Park—the basketball courts, the playground, the Community Center, the grass field, and the Pavilion—to find parking on Community Road or nearby. Many of these people have strollers and small children in tow, and others are seniors who have difficulty walking. It’s imperative that they be able to park close by.
