Measure L

Zoning Explained

The ballot measure claims that the Quarry is zoned for "2.1 million square feet of commercial". That does not mean that such an intense volume of development is guaranteed or assured-- far from it.

PTT responds to the City's Election Code 9212 report

I would like to say thank you to our city attorney Cecilia Quick and city staff for preparing this report under such short notice.

Full Text of 9212 report on Quarry Ballot Measure

As expected, the City has confirmed that there is no plan, there is no project, there are no tangible benefits to the City nor to us, its citizens, in this ballot measure, nor any way to determine prior to the November 7th election what damage 355 houses in the Quarry would cause to our traffic or our environment.

The truth is simple

I was disappointed by the tone of some of last weeks' Letters supporting up to 355 houses in the Quarry.

This isn't a battle of Pacificans vs. Pacificans. The enemy is the unacceptably vague ballot measure and the 355 houses and traffic nightmare it would create.

"There is no project"

On Monday night, July 24th, Pacifica Councilmember Cal Hinton said:

"There is no project here. There is nothing to evaluate for a report"

Beware Fool's Gold

Beware of fool's gold! Florida developer Don Peebles is frantically trying to woo voters into supporting his huge 355-housing unit project. He is darting from group to group in our community promising all sorts of goodies -- anything that will get their support and votes.

Unanswered Questions

Outrageous Paid Signature-Gatherers

During the recent petition drive for the Quarry housing ballot initiative, on two separate occasions, two different signature gatherers came to my house. The first one, I talked with directly and said No, I didn't want to sign my name to add 355 houses to the Quarry. The NEXT DAY, while I was at work, another signature gatherer came to my house and talked with my very ill husband.

There's No Plan

Mr. Peebles can promise you anything imaginable if that is what it takes to win your vote. The fact of the matter is that there is NO PLAN! The only thing we will be voting on is 355 Housing units. The Peebles Corporation will have no obligation to propose a mixed use project nor fulfill his promises to you. Also, there is nothing that would prevent this corporation from proposing a plan with 355 single detached houses if this measure passes. Why would anyone vote in this blank check without a plan in place to ensure we are guaranteeed what we are promised and deserve?!
