We have come full circle since we started the General Plan Amendment journey in November 2013. One year later our collective efforts resulted in the overwhelming defeat of Measure Y.
We have all worked hard to develop a wonderful and inclusive network of supporters, neighbors and friends. We intend to stay in touch with you when issues arise and invite you to do the same. Isn’t it a good feeling to know that together we have had a positive impact on preserving our quality of life?
Yes it is . . . but we must continue our vigilance. The defeat of Measure Y does not solve the traffic problem in Newport Beach. It simply prevented an additional 9,000 daily car trips from being added to the existing congestion we experience every day.
We plan to 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.
