San Diego City Council Committee Unanimously Supports Open Data Policy

How about a system that reports how much each city council member has received in political contributions from each interested party before every vote on land use and zoning issues?

Should More Development Be Allowed In Cleveland National Forest?

San Diego County voters made it very clear that they want the forest protected when they passed the Forest Conservation Initiative. Now wealthy property owners are bribing County board members to get their inholdings upzoned. If the board refuses to respect the voters clear intent now, it may be time to vote some of them out of office and pass a new initiative preventing them from overturning the FCI.

San Diego Airport Seeking Public Opinion On Long-Term Plan

Do not spend anymore money replacing or remodeling the terminal buildings on Harbor Drive. Move all terminals to the northeast corner of the airfield and
fold them into a new multimodal transportation center facility linking air passengers with trains, trolleys and rental cars. Eventually, use cut and cover to put all automobile traffic BELOW Harbor Drive and build a new runway in the Harbor Drive right of way along the south edge of the airfield. Presto, you now have two runways at Lindbergh Field, and the trolley links to go with them.

Barrio Logan Strongly Disagreed With San Diego Voters

San Diego has a long history of racism. The consultants running the campaign for the big shipyards knew they could count on that racism if they put this issue up to a citywide vote.

Settling The Bill For Closing The San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station

"with ratepayers paying costs that assume San Onofre is still up and running". But SONGS has been shut down for two years. So why should ratepayer have to keep paying for two reactors that are not working as though they were still working? That doesn't seem to make any sense. Saying it has to be done
"because that's the way we've always done it" make no sense either, given the unique mess SCE has gotten everybody into.

Cocos Fire 87 Percent Contained; All Residents Can Return Home

North County millionaires: If your multi-million dollar McMansion burns, sue someone. Start with the sprawl developer who sold you the place, knowing it was in the middle of a known wildfire corridor. Then identity the city or county politicians who gave the sprawl developer upzoning, allowing him to build expensive new homes in sprawl housing subdivisions in known wildfire corridors. If that doesn't get you anywhere, sue yourself for being dumb enough to think you could live in the middle of a known wildfire corridor and not get burned out. Then move out of the corridors so it won't happen again in a few years.

Stop building new homes in the middle of known wildfire corridors, and there will be less need for taxpayers to pay for saving homes threatened by the next fires.

Balboa Park Centennial Group OKs Deal To End Agreement With City

Why is the city council looking at any deals BEFORE the audit is completed? That makes zero sense. What is the city trying to cover up?

Water Flows Uphill? Maybe, In California Drought

How many thousand diesel pumps would be needed to move this water uphill? How much additional pollution would those diesel units inject into the Central Valley air, already the most polluted air in the state? If the billionaire Beverley Hills "farmers' who own the land on the west side of the valley get their hands on this water, when will they be coming for Southern California's water?
