It was noted in the 9/24/13 issue of the UT San Diego, that the 5 San Diego County Supervisors voted unanimously to approve a large portion of Southern California, including San Diego County, as one of the proposed 6 national Drone Test Sites, to be determined by the FAA in December, 2013.

This idea was originally proposed by the San Diego Military Advisory Council, and the San Diego Regional Economic Development Corp.

There have been no public forums, informational hearings or opportunities for concerned citizens to ask about the drone test sites, and to express concerns and public input. In fact, many area residents do not even know that this proposal is being considered.

A newly formed concerned citizens group, BACK COUNTRY VOICES, is taking action, and sponsoring 2 public meeting venues, to raise awareness, gather information, and express concerns about San Diego County possibly becoming 1 of 6 national drone test sites, and what that would mean to our safety, privacy and environment.

The 'BCV' has invited knowledgeable drone experts, politicians on both sides of the aisle, members of the FAA, ACLU, Bill of Rights Defense Committee, S.D. Veterans for Peace Foundation, Next Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen), San Diego Coalition for Peace and Justice, Sen. Boxer, firefighters, environmentalist, and others, to present the community with factual information on what's at stake for San Diego being a 'National Testing Site for Drones.'
