Rocklin Poll: No To Clover Valley Project
The City of Rocklin,
Local and regional organizations like Save Clover Valley, Clover Valley Foundation, United Auburn Indian Community, Sierra Club Motherlode Chapter, Placer Land Trust and others, have an alternative vision: Protecting and preserving in perpetuity one of the last spectacular landscapes in western Placer County by conserving scenic values and wildlife habitat in the area between the cities of Loomis, Rocklin, Lincoln and the rest of Placer County.
A recent survey conducted by Sacramento based polling service Capitol Campaigns and partners Viewpoint USA of Madison, Connecticut found that Rocklin voters would support a referendum to stop development of Clover Valley.
About 400 registered Rocklin voters were asked in May if they would support stopping development of the 622 acre project site. Sixty four percent of those polled said they would definitely or probably support the referendum, while 14 percent were undecided.
Capitol Campaigns owner and chief consultant Bryan DeBlonk said those most likely to support a referendum to block development were long time residents of Rocklin, those 65 years of age or older and frequent voters.
