Blakespear is flopping again!!!!! This is from her partner's newsletter (Shaffer)And:
Council member Blakespear expressed unhappiness with her relationship with SANDAG and what she perceived as unfair terms of the proposed MOU. She proposed that we ask the newly formed Coastal Mobility and Livability Working Group (see above) to consider whether we should stay with the currently proposed Highway 101 alignment or reconsider the east side with additional "concessions" from SANDAG to accommodate the local community. This elicited a response from the Mayor that she would never support the east side. She felt that SANDAG had demonstrated their willingness and ability to listen to community input and it was the City Council that wasn't listening when we originally supported the east side plan.
SHE IS TRYING TO GET THE EAST SIDE ALIGNMENT BACK.
Write or call Blakespear and let her know how you are greatly against this. 760-633-2620
Please email SANDAG right now. Here is the email address Tessa.firstname.lastname@example.org They have a meeting tomorrow at 9 am to discuss the Coastal Rail Trail. The citizens need to let them know we are in favor of the west side alignment.
Here is my letter,
I am writing to let you know that my group, http://www.norailtrail.com/ and https://www.facebook.com/norailtrail/ is in complete agreement with putting the Coastal Rail Trail on the west side of the Rail Road Tracks along coast HWY in Encinitas. Our group is called No Rail Trail because we did not support the city council member's decision to put the CRT on the east side of the Rail Road Tracks.
Please don't let the failure of our city council members representing our wishes effect your decision. We do not blame SANDAG for this. Our group has well over 2,000 members and you have received an email from each one of these members when they joined the group. As a matter of fact our city has never had more of a response on any issue that this one.
Please do the right thing and approve the Coastal Rail Trail west side alignment.
