Monday, Sept. 29, 2008 | We were asked to conserve water and we did so. More development was approved.
We’re now asked to conserve more water. And now more development is approved, most recently Quarry Falls, which calls for nearly 4,800 homes and 1.2 million square feet of commercial development.
I don’t oppose conserving resources, but what is the point when the end result is that millions more get crammed into San Diego County. This leads to more calls for current residents to conserve and to pay for more infrastructure so millions more people can move in. This is good for developers and politicians, but how is it good for us? Why make every person in the world welcome when it causes us to breathe dirty air, sit in traffic for endless hours and destroy what was once beautiful about San Diego?
