Our Pledge for 2015

We will continuously monitor proposed development projects and resulting traffic impacts which will inevitably come before the Planning Commission, City Council and California Coastal Commission.  And we plan to keep you informed of projects that will jeopardize the residential and environmental qualities that we fought so hard to maintain, whether within our own city limits or projects initiated by neighboring cities that will impact Newport Beach.

We will stay connected with our inclusive and growing network of supporters, neighbors and friends.  We will use a variety of communication tools to do so, including our website, email, Facebook, Twitter and member meetings.
