Jerry Vaughn answered:
In the last 15 years people have really started loving the uniqueness of living on an island. Most of the people love the water and/or water sports.
They love the peace and quiet along with the rural feel. But in reality you are merely a few minutes from town or the freeways. I would say about 90% of the people live on water so clearly they have wonderful views of the water and all the life it holds. Living on the Delta is a great way to watch the many kinds of birds migrating up and down California! Once people live on the island they don't want to leave! ... more

An association is not what this area is all about. As a twenty year homeowner with two properties in this area (two of the best maintained on my road I might add) I completely agree with the clean up and maintaining the property values. Take your concerns to the BIMAC and BIMID meetings who meet at Scout Hall and on Stone Road on a monthly basis.
As for the callous comment from Ronnie, the homes he refers to have been in existence long before the county established themselves and were built with whatever requirements "rules" that were needed whether from the Army Corps of Engineers or the powers that be at the time which means some sixty plus years ago. Are these homeowners being compensated for the "taking" of their properties? What right does anyone have to strip this poor folks mostly Seniors of their homes? If FEMA or any agency truly wanted to strenthen the levies they could simple crane them up, and set them back down. Look at the work being done shoring up against the ocean on those expensive apartments in Pacifica!
How would you feel if some governmental agency came along and tried to take your home or property away? City council meetings do not govern here, this is an unincorporated area and your supervisor's name is Federal Glover, good luck with that one.
