Protect the Rights of Irvine Residents; Demand the City put its People *BEFORE* Developers
------------------------------------------------------------------------------ UPDATE 6/13/17: Thanks to our supporters, significant progress has been made! The Irvine Company has proposed to move the Safari Substation to an alternative site that is acceptable to both the City of Irvine and the Spectrum 5 community (NoSubstation.com). We are now asking Southern California Edison to agree with the proposal. Please SIGN OUR PETITION and come to the Safari Substation Public Discussion on Tuesday, 6/27/17 @ 4:00PM to show your support. For more information, please read the Petition Updates posted below. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Call on the Irvine City Council to continue taking decisive action on behalf of the people of Irvine! The Spectrum 5 community originally came together to stop Southern California Edison (SCE) and The Irvine Company from dropping a high-voltage electrical substation in the middle of our fully built-out community. After nearly 1-1/2 years of petitioning the Irvine City Council and Planning Commission, we have obtained the support of the City Council. Now both The Irvine Company and SCE are speaking to us about alternatives for the Safari Substation. This is the kind of resident-city-utility-developer dialogue we have been asking for since the beginning. Please sign our petition to let the City Council and City staff know that we appreciate and support their initiative in getting the Safari Substation moved to a safe and compatible location.

Help the environment and sea life by banning the use of plastic bags in Minnesota.
Nearly two million plastic bags are used per minute, this over consumption of plastic affects sea life, human life, and the environment around us. More than 100,000 animals are killed every year from consuming and being entangled in plastic bags. Because 88% of the oceans are covered with plastic, humans ingest toxin chemicals that were consumed by the fish. In order to solve this problem we need to start small. To obtain more knowledge on this issue I would recommend the documentary Plastic Paradise The Great Pacific Garbage Patch. This petition is to help ban the use of plastic bags in the state of Minnesota. As a young adult this issue is very important to me because this earth is a home for future generations and for myself. By destroying marine life, we are destroying humanity one plastic bag at a time. If you would like to help ocean life and the problem of pollution, please sign this petition. Every signature counts!

Support CSUSM to Ban Plastic Straws in Beach Cities!
The environmental problem that we will be addressing is the plastic pollution of single use drinking straws which is polluting our aquatic systems. Out of all the pollution in the world’s ocean, 90% are from plastic waste and plastic straws remain in the top ten plastic products found in the ocean. The common plastic straw is made out of polypropylene which is a petroleum based product that is made to last forever. In order to limit plastic straws from ever entering the waters of the ocean and entering the ecosystems and stomachs of sea life, we must stop the pollution starting with American consumers.How can you make a difference in reducing the amount of plastic straw pollution? By proposing a ban in the city of Encinitas that will discourage the consumption of single use straws in businesses and at home, we can stop these short lived plastics from invading our oceans. We plan to use our research to make a real change in our local community. By showing your support and signing your name on this petition you are taking a stand with us towards a sustainable lifestyle and making a change in your world.

Stop Express-Times from littering our neighborhoods!
The Express-Times litters our sidewalks, yards and streets weekly with its Marketplace flyer. This creates an unsightly, unsafe criminal environment and reduces the real estate values of our homes. This is not a subscription and therefore should not be delivered unless requested by individual residents. Studies show that people are more likely to litter where there is already litter. Therefore, it isn't just the direct impact of their littering but also the additional litter that it perpetuates that foments a negative perception of our neighborhoods. Also, it has been proven that crime rates are higher in areas that are littered. Criminals are more likely to perpetrate crimes in areas that are perceived to be unkept, unmanaged and untidy because they feel that the residents are negligent and unlikely to report suspicious activity. In addition, when residents are on vacation, accumulated flyers advertise to would-be thieves that there is no one at home and therefore it is a prime target for theft. The abandoned homes that have numerous flyers in front are a signal to criminals that the house is available to carry out criminal activity.
