Your voices are needed to respond to another important issue facing Coronado’s future -- a government mandated housing density requirement.

The SANDAG Board of Directors will hold a public hearing at its Aug. 23, 2019, meeting to receive comments on the draft methodology, (www.sandag.org/uploads/projectid/projectid_189_26289.pdf). If a member of the public is not able to make it to the public hearing, they are encouraged to submit comments to Seth Litchney at seth.litchney@sandag.org or 619-699-1982.

All advance written public comments must be received by August 21, 2019, at 5 p.m. to be included in handouts provided to the SANDAG Board of Directors during the public hearing. The public comment period will end on August 23, 2019.

It would be irresponsible of government entities to impose a housing density mandate on “built out” cities, such as Coronado, that are already stretched to capacity and struggling to support existing aging infrastructure and public safety needs.

Should Coronado experience a true emergency or disaster situation that would require a mass evacuation or other emergency response, are we prepared? One only has to look at the everyday traffic congestion for an answer to that question.

Coronado cannot sustain further over-development!

Thank you for doing your part to help keep Coronado the special place that it is!
