Cardiff Specific Plan archives available online

From the Inbox:
As the Housing Element is coming up I put the www.savecardiff.com website that I had prepared from 2007-2010 back online as a historical resource of the council’s long time plan to ignore the will of residents and promote high density up-zoning in the Cardiff Commercial District. The citizens hard won victory to realize representation and self-determination by passing the “Cardiff Citizens Plan” in 2010 is now threatened.

The city's Housing Update, shown in the map below (but subject to change), will be on the ballot this November, and would overturn the Cardiff Specific Plan.

  1. Cardiff NEEDS low-income housing as this is where the mass majority of Cultural Marxists in the City of Encinitas live. These are the 'limo liberals' that create these crazy Section 8-style social engineering policies in the late 1960's and early 1970's. Everyone knows that now the people of Encinitas and California will not rest until there are low-income housing units near the beach because as Social Justice doctrine tells us EVERYONE deserves to live near the beach and Seaside Market and to look at MILFs wearing no bras and thong underwear under their skimpy yoga pants while coming and going from their yoga classes. It's gonna be gooood for everyone when my home girls start living the good life....real good!

    1. Sorry, no Section 8 or any other kind of housing for the poor.

      This is about creating market-rate high-density, which in a hipster spot like downtown Cardiff, is going to be luxury vacation rentals and party pads for the inland rich.

  2. What has happened to this site? 4:38 and 4:40, you people are sick.

  3. City council agenda for June 18 on the housing element is now on the city website.
    The city staff has declared war on the residents of Encinitas. Will the council join them on Wednesday?

  5. It has a lot on it. And, after that the Mayor put, as a last item (11C) stuff about the cardiff rail trail. That's going to be one long meeting.

  6. Where have you Cardiff NIMBYs been for the past 18 months? While most of the folk in Encinitas have been guarding their neighborhoods you have not been active in this fight against the HCD nonsense. Now it's just a matter of putting on the final ink. Resistance is futile. You will be assimilated.

    In all seriousness it is too late to get things changed. The Cardiffians need to either accept their fate or secede from Encinitas. Either way the dreaded developers will have their lunch.

  7. It is not too late to stop this, far from it. So many errors along the way, so many lies. Keep fighting our corrupt city and developer interests or its grid lock and ugly on the horizon.

    1. You are welcome to argue and support whatever side you wish. But to threaten "gridlock and ugly" if you don't get your way makes you sound like a petulant child.

      Grow up and join us in the adult world.

    2. sounds accurate to me. If we wanted higher density, we would move to Pacific Beach or Hungtington Beach.

      Most peoples desire is to leave areas like PB or HB and move to Encinitas. Why would we want to ruin Encinitas and make it more like PB and HB? I don't and that's why I will be voting NO on the Housing element (titled At Home- What a farce).... thats like giving the war in Iraq the title - (the peaceful good war).

      I also encourage everyone to spread the word to at least 10 voters in Encinitas to vote NO on the upcoming HOUSING ELEMENT UPDATE.

      ENCINITAS STAFF HAVE LIED TOO MANY TIMES AND CANNOT BE TRUSTED.

    3. 9:57 Oops! Encinitas Blvd already has gridlock, meant to say epic gridlock and over the top ugly, given what planning will approve (Pacific Station anyone?) be sure to vote NO on the housing element.

    4. Ah. Sorry. I thought you were threatening gridlock and ugly in Council meetings. I see what you meant now.

  8. The crucial thing we can do, is find candidates that won't sell us out, as they all did over Prop A., every single one of them. Candidates that won't fight for Prop A have other allegiances and we do not need any more of them.

    The No on the Railtrail folks were so effective that it is a shame they are not joining keeping that power to the people activism going. We need them, Cardiff needs them, this whole town needs them and many more to preserve our community's character from the urbanization that seems to be all that the Planning Dept knows how to do.

    Uniting every neighborhood will take back our precious town. If you don't have a density project near you at the present, you inevitably will. If you think traffic sucks now, don't wait for it to get many times worse.

    Vote this HEU plan down and save our town. There is not one candidate running for council that is not in favor of the plan. That should tell you how much you can expect to rely upon them once they ascend to the dais.

    There is not one candidate deserving of our votes at the present time. Hopefully between now and early August we will. Any who doubt, go ahead and ask them yourself where they stand on the HEU. Ask them where they stand on Prop A.

    Council members claim they are removing anything in the HEU that subverts the intention of Prop A. If you believe that, I have a bridge in Brooklyn, I want to sell you.

    1. Interesting, the Orlando hit man worked for the British/Israeli Security firm that was caught defrauding and bilking the British taxpayers but more interestingly has major contracts in the illegally occupied West Bank working for racist and apartheid Israel. Did this fact and the fact that the same crowd forces gay marriage on our culture have anything to do with his 'hit' on the gay night club?

  9. The simplest message to all your friends who vote is vote no on the At Home in Encinitas that intents to make Encinitas look like Pacific Beach. Yuck!!!

  10. I would think the norailtrail folks would organize and get out the "no" vote just as they mobilized to put the rail trail where it belongs.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Write to the city council NOW: council@encinitasca.gov
    Tell them NO on the proposed plan that includes the Cardiff Town Center. Or in November they will find the HEU voted down. Then show up on Wednesday at 6 p.m.

    1. Hello Concerned Resident,

      Of the four map strategies this one is the one that does the least damage to the city as a whole. Calm down and work to defeat the HEU come November.

    2. The settlement agreement that the city signed for the BIA lawsuit requires that the city approve the Housing Element Update. Map 4 with the Cardiff Town Center is the environmentally superior version. Fat chance the city will make any major changes. Just vote NO in November.

    3. Vote no is the best option.

  12. Vote No on housing element. The traffic on PCH is already unbearable. Doubling the residents on that street alone will be a huge mistake. All those new 3 story condos stacked along Hw101 will clog or streets and beaches, and use more water that we don't have in this desert.

    I do not want to live in Pacific Beach and will be voting No in No vember. Tell all your freinds to vote No in No vember.

    1. Ever drive Camino Del Mar anytime near rush hour? I'm sure all that traffic is due to residents. Not! Same here in Encinitas. A lot of PCH traffic is from Carlsbad.

      Delete
    2. 2:10. you make no sense. We should build up PCH because the traffic is not local but from Carlsbad? Start your job search or get a lawyer city planning lackey.

      Cant wait to get these corupt MFs under oath and infront of a jury of their peers. Vote No and bring in the courts and the truth will be revealed.

      I see reading comprehension isn't your strong suit.

  13. I agree. And I'm still not voting for increased density . No to at home in Pacific beach .

    ReplyDelete
  14. Are there "No Density" people running for mayor and council this year? All the candidates I know of are pro-density (incumbents, Pete Wilson stepson, Tasha).

    ReplyDelete
  15. There is not one candidate yet that is deserving of our votes. Zilch, nada, not even one. Remember that when some truly new candidates of and for the people come forward before the time to file runs out in early August.

    Hope springs eternal that the clock does not run out before we have a few, [plural] defenders of our community stand up and choose to run.

    ReplyDelete
  16. There are Prop A people who did their part and then some so no, are not running. How about an appreciative believer or two or three step up? Folks should not look to the same few to carry the banner every time. Step up.

  17. 3:59 and 4:12, I nominate you two. Seriously.
