Mather Alliance’s petition reached over 1,000 signatures, including some from Saudi Arabia, Australia, Germany, Netherlands, Canada, and Austria! We continue to update Supervisor Nottoli on the number of signatures and comments.

He told us he reads them and follows the petition’s progress.  We were even blessed by an unknown benefactor from Wisconsin who paid to promote our petition. Thank you to our generous anonymous supporter!

Mather Development Community Meeting attended by Supervisor Don Nottoli who reiterated the need for sustained community involvement to help shape the future development of Mather.  

Mather Alliance presented alternative development plan that would: 

  • Enlarge the proposed Mather preserve to protect important vernal pools (including those used by the Sacramento Splash Learning Center).
  • Maintain Zinfandel (aka Eagles Nest) at two lanes and make it curvy to slow traffic. 
  • Locate any new sports park facilities closer to existing sports park facilities in the business park.
  • Not include the public/quasi-public land use change that would allow for anything from a university to a waste facility near Mather's preserve.

Mather stakeholders commented.
