283 rental units on 6 net acres using R-30 Density + additional density bonus
***IMPORTANT: Reclaim Encinitas is not saying "NO" to development. Development can be great but should be done in accordance with our Encinitas culture, by the will of the people, transparently. But what if our vision for Encinitas is at odds with the dictates of the state of California? Should we just give up? Has the scandal-ridden San Diego Association of Governments (SANDAG) already sold us out? Shouldn't we elect a mayor and city council who will facilitate local, regional and state entities working in good faith to establish (re-establish?) goals and work towards those goals together? Our current mayor asserts that our hands are tied, but MAKE NO MISTAKE, mayor Blakespear is pro urban density for Encinitas, so I doubt she'd try to free our hands anyway.
While campaigning in the last election cycle (2016) she said not every city should have to be urban and she doesn't support a "perpetual march towards densification". However, since being in office she has done a complete about-face. She took a Regional Housing Needs Assessment (RHNA) Chair position at SANDAG and was a speaker at the Climate Action Campaign's "Increasing Suburban Density to Fight Climate Change" event on 10/15/2019. During her one hour speech she lauded politicians and non-profit workers as visionaries and average people in Encinitas as "anti-housing", and talked openly about "why we're now suing our residents". Interestingly she now states on her campaign website, "Some people are accusing the city of “suing its residents” to overturn their right to vote as allowed by Prop. A. Nothing could be further from the truth." Watch and listen for yourself:
