Vote for Proposition J — Don’t miss this opportunity

After years of inaction and steady decline in our downtown, I am grateful that the citizens of Del Mar will finally be able to vote for a solution with Proposition J on the November ballot.  Prop J will lessen traffic congestion and neighborhood impacts, provide a pedestrian-friendly village, and boost economic activity for our businesses downtown.

That is why the plan was adopted unanimously by the Planning Commission  and City Council, and why most  Del Mar residents are coming together in support of the plan.  Please don’t be misled by the nay-sayers. They have no solution to our existing problems.  All they offer is more of the same. The Village Specific Plan, or Prop J, is a community-based plan which can pave the way to enhance this wonderful ecosystem of trees, ocean views, lively and economically viable businesses, downtown residential and cultural activities — all meandering down a real “Main Street.” This chance will not come again for a long time.
