Canadian Firm Exploring Ballot Battle for New Power Plant Here

Well... the truth is out about Capital Power Corporation, if the following information is correct: Click on the website: http://www.universitycitynews.org/local/not-in-... And from a notice from the University City "Friends of Rose Canyon"... --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- QUOTE: The mayor's staff (i.e. Jerry Sanders) have negotiated a secret deal to lease a large parcel of conservation land on Nobel Drive to a Canadian power company to build a massive 850 megawatt, ugly, pollution-emitting power plant in our community! They have kept this secret from the community and the City Council. On Weds. June 27, the Mayor's staff will ask the City Council to rush this proposal onto the November ballot for approval in hopes that an avalanche of money and slick flyers from the power company will overwhelm opposition from the surrounding communities. Act before June 27 1. Tell the city council: "No" to the ballot measure, "No" to the power plant" 2. Attend City Council Rules Comm. meeting Weds. June 27, 9 am, 12th floor City Hall (contact us first to confirm it is on the agenda) Power plant would be on NE corner of Nobel/805 Close to MCAS Miramar runway Close to residential areas 1500 ft. from La Jolla Crossroads high-density apartments 2000' from Renaissance and Lucera condo complexes .75 mile from South UC many residential areas within 1 mile and 2 mile radius Close to schools .5 mile from Congregation Beth Israel (preschool and high school) .75 mile from UC High School 1 mile from Curie Elementary 1.5 mile radius: Standley Middle School, Doyle Elem., La Jolla Country Day 2000 ft. from North UC Library, Nobel Rec Ctr, Nobel Playing Fields Land is conservation land with vernal pools, part of Rose Creek watershed ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Full public disclosure of this 850 megawatt power plant in the middle of a large residential community needs to be discussed and debated by those living in University City and all others of San Diego... lest this company plan a similar power plant in their neighborhood.
