While many folks were vacationing this summer, you can bet that CoGentrix was NOT. Certainly they were “wining and dining” with San Diego City Councilmembers to promote their ill-conceived fossil fuel plant in our open space and community.
Well, San Diego City Councilmembers need to hear from us, too! We are the ones who will be affected 24/7 by pollution, noise, property value loss, and detriment to Mission Trails Regional Park – set aside for recreation and wildlife preservation, not heavy industrial. The San Diego City Council will have a public hearing Monday, September 24, 2 pm with CoGentrix. (Attend! Participate! Save the date and click here for updates.) Your statement of opposition via phone call, letter,email, or fax are needed TODAY (just a few sentences “I oppose Quail Brush Generation Project because…” is fine) to the San Diego City Councilmembers. If you email, include the CA Energy Commission (CEC) via a cc to firstname.lastname@example.org.
-Live in the City of San Diego? Be sure to tell your councilmember that you are a voting constituent. (Find your councilmember by zip code here.)
-Is Tierrasanta your home as well? Contact your Tierrasanta Community Councilmembers too. (And click here for upcoming Tierrasanta events.)
-Live in San Carlos, Allied Gardens, Del Cerro, Grantville? Navajo Community Planners need to hear directly from you.
-In East County? Yes, write the San Diego City Councilmembers again and remind them that there’s an overcapacity of energy – no need for the plant, and the site is correctly zoned open space as part of Mission Trails expansion area and a high fire-hazard zone.
Thanks to you we can keep Mission Trails and East Elliott green and our air clean!
