Carlsbad Citizens want a vote: 85/15 development



On Thursday, August 20, a group of citizens held a press conference on the north bank of Agua Hedionda Lagoon in protest of the Caruso Affiliated development proposed for the Carlsbad strawberry fields.

Environmental professionals voiced their concerns in detail as news reporters and videographers recorded every word.

Opponents of the 85/15 plan believe that the people of Carlsbad should have the right to vote on the future of the Agua Hedionda land.

On August 25, the Carlsbad City Council will decide if the people of Carlsbad will have the opportunity to vote. If not, the strawberry field development will immediately be approved.

    We want to vote on this project. To much of this has been under the radar of most Carlsbad citizens and the implication of a out of town developer can lead, and pay for a citizen initiative, when in fact they ARE REGISISTERED VOTERS IN CARLSBAD for their own financial gain….
