- The main concern in the Wheeler Crest area is preserving the aesthetic beauty and tranquility of the area while still allowing for development of the many privately owned parcels. The focus of development is to be single-family residential development.
- The Wheeler Crest area contains vital deer wintering and migration habitat.
- There is a need to minimize the effects of additional single-family and Accessory Dwelling Unit development on deer and wildlife corridors while facilitating the maintenance of a structure’s defensible space for wildland fire protection purposes.
- There is concern about a secondary access route to the Wheeler Crest area for emergency purposes.
