Do Not let greed ruin Opportunity to heal habitat

The City of San Diego is planning to lease De Anza Point for another 50 years. Having diverted funds from the Mission Bay Improvement Fund to elsewhere and Balboa Park, it’s eager to protect and boost the revenue that it receives from the rental of our lands. The programs of the city, but jeopardize the continuing attempts to restore salt marsh habitat in Mission Bay Park.

I feel the recovery of salt marsh is far more valuable than a parking lot because of vehicles, economically, esthetically friendly and environmentally friendly. Please write to your City Council representative, if you agree. The city’s plan will be officially presented shortly and then visit the City Council for their vote. Please talk for the recovery of salt marsh habitat.
For more information about recovery attempts see the Audubon Society’s site.
