Safari Highlands DELAYED Project not to be reviewed until 2017

Today in the San Diego Union Tribune it was reported that that disastrous Safari Highlands Ranch project near the Safari Park will be delayed.  Safari Highalnds Project Delayed

The city of Escondido has stated that they want to take time to 'get it right'.  However, there is no getting this project right....unless they want to comply with the County's General Plan for the area-- meaning 26 homes--not 550.

The 1,000 acres proposed for massive development is important to preserve for many reasons. Notably, it contains high-grade habitats which are key for the success of the region's multiple species conservation planning.

To destroy this important habitat would significantly undermine conservation planning that has take 20 years and millions of dollars.

We hope the wildlife agencies and the County are paying attention.

URGENT Action Alert -- Please sign on to letter to Supervisors asking for environmental review of massive project

Dear Friends,
Again, developers are trying to end run our public process.  We just learned from our friends at Save our SD Countryside  that the Board of Supervisors has just scheduled a hearing on Lilac Hills Development for Tuesday.

Please go to this link and sign the proposed letter Letter to Supervisors  or, better yet, please write your own.

You can also contact your supervisor directly and leave a message or talk to their staff.

This is the most recent attempt to end-run our public process.  A Carlsbad developer tried it in June and lost.  We cannot afford to let them win here.  If this become the model for massive and sprawl development, the public will lose its voice in development matters that impact our region and our lives dramatically.

Learn more about this project here.

Please sign the letter and spread the word!
