Stop the sprawl before we lose all our scenery

Willow Avenue north of Herndon, back when it was just a "T" intersection, was a scenic drive despite not being officially designated as such. For the same reason, the Copper/Auberry Road stretch that Gary McDonald wants to build on is scenic and should remain so. For the same reason Willow Avenue north of Copper is very scenic but unfortunately may, in the future, cease to be.

What is that reason? A truly scenic drive isn't always about what you can see there, but what you can see from there.

Both Fresno and Clovis need to stop or mightily re-direct the cancerous northward development that is eating up our beautiful land before all we have is concrete, plaster and asphalt to look at.
