For a healthy prospering Del Mar, vote ‘Yes’ on Prop J

It is amazing to me how Prop J has caused so much angst in this town, especially since it is suppose to enhance and enrich this community.  I suppose it could be contributed to false statements made by those who oppose revitalization.  For instance, a statement made on the “No on J” website stated that there are no vacancies in the City of Del Mar and that the city is doing just fine.  Walking the city the other day, it was noted just on 10th St. and 11th St. there are 11 vacancies located within those buildings alone. It is not known how many other vacancies there are for potential businesses since I quit counting. Another statement made by the No on J website, which said that roundabouts are dangerous and one had to be removed due to the danger, came from an article written 12 years ago in the community of Palm Beach, Fla. Anyone can find anything on the web to prove a point but what needs to be clear is that the information cited has to be current, true and appropriate to the situation.

Del Mar is dying a slow death. With all the vacancies located throughout the city, how much in sales tax revenues are being lost? How can the city encourage new businesses to participate in Del Mar if it has old ideas and is unwilling to invite new businesses to thrive?  What happens when the revenues of the city dwindle to the point that the  City of Del Mar can no longer maintain its infrastructure properly or continue to pay the needed amount of City employees to run the city  or maintain our beautiful beaches? Does the County of San Diego take over?  I don’t know.

The Del Mar City Council and staff have spent a lot of time and energy creating a very factual pamphlet on what Prop J can do for the City of Del Mar.  Take the time to read it and understand it. Then go to the meetings and ask educated questions with the knowledge to understand or question the responses.  For a healthy prospering Del Mar, vote “Yes” on Prop J.

A comment; no I am not a resident of Olde Del Mar, but I love it and contribute to it as if I were.
