Community should have input on future plans for polo fields
By Rudy and Rosanna Biller
We read with interest the article on the expiration of the Polo Club lease published in the Del Mar Times Jan. 5.
As a resident of the community adjoining the polo fields, what happens to the polo fields is of vital interest to us.
Presently some activities taking place on these fields have a serious negative impact on our community and are apparently in violation of the lease between the Polo Club and the City of San Diego and perhaps the deed granted by Watts Industries to the City of San Diego. These apparent violations include misuse of the property, excessive automobile traffic and parking, noise, and unauthorized tournaments. In addition we are also concerned about environmental damage to the San Dieguito River Park.
In view of this, the community must have a strong voice in any future plans for the use of this property by the City of San Diego. Your article indicates that the City plans are unclear at this time. We hope the City will be open and commutative as this process unveils.
We think America’s finest city should be thinking about the quality of life of its citizens and not money.
