SOS for Open Space – Saving the Natural Lands of Carlsbad
Preserve Calavera is leading a coalition of community organizations on a grass roots campaign to save some of the priceless natural lands of Carlsbad. These natural lands are a key part of what makes this such a special place to live. But many of the areas are under immediate threat of development. We need to preserve the best of what we have left- places like the Buena Vista Creek Valley with the sacred El Salto waterfall. Places like Village H that serves as a natural meeting area for the community. Places like Kato/Mandana that provide the critical link in the regional wildlife movement corridor. Places where our children can connect with nature and everyone can enjoy a quiet walk or hear the sound of a creek or the call of a bird. Open space gives us a high quality of life and preserves our property values. It is good for residents, businesses and visitors alike.
In 2002 the residents of Carlsbad passed Measure C- authorizing some of the millions of reserve funds to be allocated for the acquisition of open space and trails. In 2007 a City Council appointed citizen’s committee evaluated and prioritized the remaining lands. Ten years seems like long enough to do what the voters asked them to do- allocate these funds to a restricted account and preserve some of these lands before it is too late. Finally, in June, 2012, the Carlsbad City Council agreed to set aside $5 million for open space. We continue to educate the public and lobby the city council to use this money for natural open space acquisition while it is still available. Share our the new video above with friends and family.
