The idea for Prop A started many years ago when an obviously pro-development City Council reigned in Encinitas.
I have watched the debate over Proposition A intensify across our five-unique Encinitas communities.
A lot of time, energy, and money was spent on the 2012 City Council election and the results suggested that the community was ready for change.
I would like to comment on the statements by the attorneys for Rutan and the city that, “the Initiative would not take effect unless and until it is unconditionally certified by the Coastal Commission.”
Protecting Encinitas from high density building, over-development and control by a 4/5 super majority City Council to change land use zoning all represent the “spirit” of the Prop A — The Right-to-Vote Initiative.
“This is the most important election since the vote on incorporation in 1987.”
On May 15, a group associated with the development industry mailed a tasteless smear-campaign flier, in opposition to Proposition A, to every household in Encinitas.
ENCINITAS — Council agreed on language at Wednesday night’s meeting that will appear as the argument against the “right-to-vote” initiative, now known as Proposition A, during a special election June 18.
It has only been a few months since our new City Council took office.
