FSDRV President's Message - Spring 2008
We have been a voice for the preservation of the San Dieguito River Valley since 1986. Your support will allow us to continue. Some of our recent activities include:
The Friends operated, for one year, a Bus Tour of the San Dieguito Lagoon, thanks to Del Mar Community Connections who let us use their bus. For 2008, three docents are available for groups who wish to provide their own transportation.
Forty-two docents will work at a San Dieguito Trail exhibit at the 2008 Del Mar Fair.
With Del Mar Rotary, we are helping to complete the trail extending the Boardwalk.
Following are our current major concerns:
We responded the Del Mar Fairgrounds Master Plan Notice of Preparation of an EIR:
We support a reduced Flower Hill Shopping Center expansion.
As members of the River Parks Project Review Committee, we diminished negative impacts on the Park in the following way:
The Cavallo Farms project has agreed to move a projected road away from Gonzales Canyon and will relocate a large building away from the ridge line.
Your contribution will help us cover our expenses: publishing pamphlets, distributing information, maintaining our mail-box, website and other public outreach activities. (Because we are an advocacy group, contributions are not tax deductible.)
Contributors of $100.00 or more will receive a set of cards reproducing Julie Hillman’s paintings of the San Dieguito Lagoon.
As always, we are grateful for your support.
Jacqueline Winterer, President
