Apartments unwelcome

The author has taken a rather snarky view of our resistance to the proposed rezoning. Rather than seeking out other community voices, he focused on one resident and homed in on a perceived anti-apartment view. Apartments are not the issue. The developer is attempting to rezone his property AND one that is currently owned by CalTrans by having it written into a new City Plan. Rather than investigative reporting, this article only mocks the "old timers" in this "tony" (huh? editor?) community. Thirteen years ago the developer tried to get a zoning change, at this location, for a convenience store with gas pumps. A petition collected 1000 signatures at that time, 250 citizens overflowed the city council chamber and the proposal was turned down. Either our politicians have short memories or they think we do. And THAT is certainly not the case. In a short time 147 people have signed an online petition at, Petitioning City of La Mesa. The actual link is long, so use- http:/ Also a facebook page has been started, Concerned neighbors are encouraged to: Sign the petition, "Like" SaveOurCorner on facebook (set to receive notifications- for public hearings, etc) Send a letter to the Senior Planner, City of La Mesa, 8130 AllsionAve, La Mesa, CA 91942 ( CC the mayor and city council) If the author would care to make an honest attempt at reporting a serious community issue, please contact us at [email protected]
