Vote ‘Yes’ on Prop J for the benefit of our children’s future

Response to Lani Sipe Curtis’ letter to the editor dated Sept. 20, 2012

Lani speaks for young families raising kids in Del Mar when she states “as young moms, we are busy changing diapers, carpooling kids or organizing snack duty, so we are not always heard on political matters.” However, Lani goes on to say “we care deeply about the future because this is the town our kids are going to experience, interact with and grow from.”

I too grew up in Del Mar.  My son and I both work in Del Mar and agree, as most young families do, that Del Mar desperately needs revitalization.  It is long overdue and Prop J is the best way to achieve what was envisioned in the 1975 Community Plan.  A beautifully landscaped, walkable village with tree-lined streets, wider sidewalks, outdoor dining, improved traffic flow, added parking, new areas and places for families to gather as the social and cultural center of our community.  Prop J will make this environment possible, which will enhance property values, and attract new businesses to better serve our families, plus revitalize the city’s economic base.  Without the passing of Prop J, it’s simply further decay.  I would encourage all you families to vote “Yes” on Prop J for the good of their children’s future.
