The activists who have been hard at work trying to save the public access to Bahia Point in Mission Bay are getting some real traction in their efforts to get the word out and to get responses from lawmakers.
The following was writing by one of those activists that I was very proud to meet on Saturday at Bahia Point:
"This weekend was a productive one for those of us trying to save public access to Bahia Point. We met with representatives for the two candidates for San Diego City Council District 2, which is the district that includes Bahia Point. On Friday we met with Dr. Jen Campbell, the challenger for the district. She came with Suzanne and Emily from her team. They spent a good solid amount of time with us, learning our concerns, gaining an understanding of the different user groups, and discussing ideas. She will develop a position statement to post on this page very soon. On Saturday, we met with Conrad Wear, who works for Councilmember Lorie Zapf, the incumbent for District 2 (currently running for reelection). Conrad also spent a good solid amount of time with us, touring the site, and learning about the different user groups. Conrad told us that Councilmember Zapf will develop a position on the issue within the next week or two, so stay tuned. Both meetings were productive and we'd like to do something similar for the Council District 6 candidates and others."
Pictures of the on site meetings are below.
Please take some time to learn about this issue...once these beaches are gone from the public...they will NEVER be returned...so the time to get aware and INVOLVED is NOW!
