Save the "50% Coastal Exception Rule"!

This petition had 64 supporters


Citizens for Responsible Coastal Development (CRCD) was formed in 2015 as an Ad-hoc committee of the La Jolla Community Planning Association (LJCPA). These two groups are working to abolish La Jolla's most affordable and favorite residential remodel approval process, the “50% coastal exception” rule, and replace it with their “Incentive-based zoning” approval process. 

CRCD’s “Incentive-based zoning” process would reduce the applicants FAR from .6 to .4 in La Jolla and Bird Rock. In La Jolla Shores, where there currently is no FAR restriction, CRCD’s incentive-based zoning would now apply. The applicant would then have to conform to CRCD’s list of design incentives to earn back their right to build their home to the current .6 FAR. 

As reported in the May 10, 2017 La Jolla Light the CRCD members have already meet with Barbara Bry and she has offered her support to their cause. The approval of CRCD’s incentive-based plan, however is a land-use decision and is considered quasi-judicial, therefore, Bry should have not taken a position for or against CRCD’s plan. Since she has, will she now recuse herself from voting at City Council on this issue?

Our community must remain vigilant to protect our property rights! Sign this petition let Councilmember Bry and the other City Councilmembers know: “Incentive-based zoning… NIMBY!!
