Save Buena Vista Creek Valley/El Salto Falls!
6:00 PM to 10:00 PM
Carlsbad City Hall
1200 Carlsbad Village Dr
This half of the valley includes the sacred El Salto waterfall and cultural sites from the early Luiseno people that lived here 9,000 years ago. This half of the valley includes artesian ponds used to support ranching and agriculture that existed here before California became a state. This half of the valley provides foraging and nesting sites for migratory birds. This half of the valley helps filter pollution from Buena Vista Creek, helping protect the downstream lagoon and our coastal waters.
The City Council will be voting to send their Draft Housing Plan to the state- a plan that now includes 600 affordable housing units at "Quarry Creek".
Is this your vision for protecting the priceless cultural, historical and natural resources of this valley?
How You Can Help
- Attend the meeting and speak- tell them to fix the housing plan before it goes to the state- by removing the increased units proposed at Quarry Creek. (Itís harder for them to ignore the public that elected them if we fill the chambers!)
- Call or e-mail the Mayor and Council
