Come join neighbors, other residents of the beaches and across San Diego to celebrate the wonders of the half-century old 30-foot height limit and to oppose Measure C on November’s ballot. A rally and press conference will be held in PB on Thursday, October 20 at 11 am.

Measure C is the greatest threat to the height limit in 50 years. If passed, it would wipe out the height limit in the Midway planning area — a coastal wetlands area.

The event will be held near the building that started it all: the Capri-by-the-Sea in Pacific Beach. When the building was first being built, an array of locals organized to prevent it. They lost — but were galvanized to place a 30-foot height limit on the 1972 ballot. It won by over 63% of the vote that November.

This is the second event by the group Keep the Coast 30, which kicked off their campaign with a rally and press conference at the OB Pier back on October 6.

The rally itself will be held at the intersection of Mission Blvd and Missouri – within site of the tall building.

Speakers include Lori Saldaña, Scott Chipman and Lyn Manning.

Keep the Coast 30 has its website, a GoFundMe page, a “No on C” sign-making contest and a photo contest about coastal access. Check them out.

The Capri by the Sea is not just a visual warning about what will happen without the height limit: many if not most of these condos are now vacation rentals, not housing residents, https://caprisandiego.com/capri-by-the-sea/

As bad as the Capri is and what it symbolizes, it is dwarfed by the huge condos on the beach south of the Del Coronado. That is the worst that can happen.
