Save Poinsettia Park

The City of Carlsbad has approved a reckless plan that overbuilds Poinsettia Park.  It adds "Pickleball" Courts, A "Speed Soccer" Arena, an elaborate playground and a Dog run in the middle of the whole park. None of these have been demanded by the nearby residents.  The City has NOT sufficiently gauged the desires of the neighboring residents and is misappropriating the funds.  Residents will be impacted as there is ALREADY a parking shortage that will only get worse with these changes.  Also, the noise will dramatically increase with the new activities(barking, fighting, pickleball racket).   Finally, the proposed dog park  is planned for the center of the park.  This will consume that the last area where you can just relax is the true sense of a "park".  People of all ages cherish this space because every other area is already designated for a specific activity.   We demand the City reconsider the whole plan, including putting the dog park on the periphery so people won't have to walk as far and cross over the park.  Please immediately share your feelings with the council members by contacting them at the information below.  If they don't respond, do it again, and again: Mayor Matt Hall             760-801-8055    council@carlsbadca.gov Mayor Pro Tem Lorraine Wood* 760-434-2830   elwood3232@roadrunner.com Councilman Mark Packard 760-473-7388760-729-2668     Mark.packard@carlsbadca.gov Councilman Keith Blackburn* 760-420-0279 keithb911@aol.com Councilman Michael Schumacher 760-930-2050 Michael.schumacher@carlsbadca.govinfo@schumacherforcarlsbadca.com Carlsbad Planning Department 760-602-4600 Carlsbad Planning Department 760-434-2830 clerk@carlsbadca.gov *Running for re-election on the ballot November 8.If you want to help contact savepoinsettiapark@gmail.com

Petition to City of Costa Mesa, Justin Martin

Costa Mesa: Extend Bark Park Hours

Costa Mesa residents and visitors to Bark Park wish to extend it’s operating hours daily to 10pm. Furthermore, we wish to change the maintenance day to either Tuesday or Thursday. Currently, Bark Park offers Costa Mesa residents the benefit of visiting at night with park lighting and operating hours until 9pm. However, some residents are unable to arrive prior to 9pm due to late work schedules and personal conflicts. Residents wish to further take advantage of the lighting and facilities offered at Bark Park by extending it’s operating hours until 10pm. This one additional hour is still within the city’s curfew and prevents some residents from having to visit alternate facilities such as Irvine’s Central Bark to take advantage of it’s extra hour of availability. As the only nearby dog park that also offers park lighting, Irvine’s Central Bark sets a favorable precedent with a 10pm close time. Furthermore, the residents of Costa Mesa understand the necessity of a maintenance day for Bark Park. The hard work and services provided by the City of Costa Mesa on Wednesdays are greatly appreciated. However, to meet the physical needs of their canine friends, residents often must seek out other dog parks outside the city on Wednesday to visit. As previously mentioned, Irvine’s Central Bark is the nearest comparable facility that some residents must defer to. However, both Central Bark and Bark Park are closed on the same day of the week. The residents of Costa Mesa propose that Bark Park reschedule maintenance days to another day of the week, possibly Tuesday. By doing so, residents who own dogs that require daily activity may still visit a nearby open park on maintenance days.
