RESCIND THE REFERRAL
On Wed Sept 10th the City Council is deciding whether to rescind the referral for the Conejo Creek project.
HELP THEM DECIDE
We have it “on good authority” that this is a crucial time, and we need to come out in force, so the City Council will not backslide. Your heart-felt speeches and presence will make an impact.
It is equally important that you send emails and letters to the City Council. Here is the link to write to all of them at once: email@example.com Write ATTN: All Council Members re: Conejo Creek project in the subject line
or you can submit your comments to:
Dave Norman, Camarillo Community Development Director at firstname.lastname@example.org
or by regular mail to 601 Carmen Drive, Camarillo, CA 93010
As reported in today’s ACORN:
“Dave Norman, Camarillo’s community development director, said he wouldn’t speculate on what the council’s directive meant, but other city officials said it could mean the council would revoke the landowners’ initial request to study the project area.
If the council decides to revoke the initial zoning change request, the project would essentially be dead.
If the council can’t legally revoke its initial decision, the developers would move forward with the project’s final draft of the environmental impact report.
The council would then likely approve the report but, in a separate vote, deny the project.
Options will be presented to the council at its Sept. 10 meeting.”
Now we get to advocate for keeping this nearly 900 acres of farmland!
•Farmland does not create more traffic.
•This farmland allows flood waters to spread and replenish our local Pleasant Valley aquifer.
•This farmland uses reclaimed water leaving more potable water in our aquifer.
•This farmland helps to protect NBVC from encroachment.
•This farmland keeps the wildlife corridor under the 101 freeway “open” for animal movement.
•Farmland is not noisy.
•This farmland provides our community room to breathe.
•This farmland welcomes us home and makes our Camarillo Gateway unique.
•This farmland is extremely productive. Crops grow year-round and agriculture pumps $$$ into our economy.
See you all this Wednesday, at the Sept 10th meeting at City Hall Chambers. It starts at 7:30 pm and this will be the first item on the Agenda.
“The People are the City” but only if you show up and let them know how you feel!
