Get the Facts: Vote ‘Yes’ on Prop J and stop Village decay

I was shocked to read the most recent Facebook post by opponents of Del Mar’s Prop J — the Village Specific Plan.  In response to facts posted by Prop J supporters, opponents announced that their Facebook page “is not intended to be a dialog between proponents and opponents” so they are now erasing all public comments that don’t further their cause.  This exclusionary philosophy on a public Facebook page where anyone can view and comment is counter to the spirit of the social media paradigm . If opponents really believe the facts are on their side, why are they censoring all comments by Prop J supporters?  As I’ve read the claims by opponents, it is pretty clear to me they are relying on misinformation and falsehoods.  That would explain why they want to avoid a dialogue based on facts on the plan.

Hundreds of Del Mar residents volunteered thousands of hours helping develop the Village Specific Plan.  Ninety public meetings were held over a two-year period to obtain public input and make adjustments to the plan. It was unanimously approved by our Planning Commission and City Council. The biggest benefit of this plan is a reduction in traffic congestion on Camino del Mar.  So it’s quite disappointing that opponents of the plan are misrepresenting these provisions.  Proposition J will increase the carrying capacity of Camino del Mar from 900 vehicles per hour to 1,600 vehicles per hour, a  78 percent increase in traffic flow with a consequent reduction in congestion.  Less congestion means less spill-over traffic in our neighborhoods.
