THE PLAN:

  • The playground at Cabrillo Park will allegedly be upgraded and relocated along 11th Avenue
  • A new single-family housing tract will be added in this area north of the reconfigured park, with new streets on either side of the park.
  • The new sports complex and all Cabrillo Park improvements would allegedly be paid for by the developer.
  • The city will be responsible for maintaining the new sports complex

THE PROBLEM:

  • Transparency Issue: City failed to notify residents & they are not aware of the plan OR hearing
  • Economic Cost: There are concerns the city taxpayers will incur the financial burden of maintaining the sports complex
  • Social Cost:
    • The proposed plan is not sufficient enough to accommodate our high-density community; this will overcrowd our park
    • Local parks are essential to community well-being and leisure; This plan will further divide the economic status between North and South communities;
  • Environmental Cost:
    • Adding more homes will increase traffic congestion, noise, air and light pollution
    • Removal of green space disrupts our ecosystem
  • Health Cost:
