January 9, 2014 - Ridge Hearing POSTPONED
As you know, yesterday the Ridge property re-zoning/development was to be heard by the California Coastal Commission. At the last minute, the applicant, the City of Huntington Beach - asked for a POSTPONEMENT! The developer was not ready, but we were!
50 of us were at the meeting, the Trust had a detailed presentation in hand and speakers were waiting. Tuesday afternoon an addendum was released that showed that approximately 1,600 postcards were received from you - our members!!! Our strength supported the dozens of letters by archaeologists, Native Americans, and State agencies who wrote to object to development on the Ridge.
A huge 'Thank You' to each of you who attended the meeting, called, wrote and sent in postcards!! A special thanks to Dr. Patricia Martz who has worked so very hard to protect this sacred land for us all.
Destroying a 9,000 year old archaeological site in order to build 22 houses is just plain wrong. Together, we will save it.
THANK YOU FOR HELPING US SAVE ALL OF BOLSA CHICA!
