Oside To Destroy Our Buena Vista Lagoon

by The Editors on September 23, 2007

19 28 109 22 07Leave it to the Oceanside City Council to ignore a recommendation from their own Planning Commission and approve an “82-room hotel, a restaurant and four 3,400-square-foot condominiums” on the northern shore of Buena Vista Lagoon, according to an opinion piece by Judi Wilson in the North County Times.

Buena Vista Lagoon, located on the border between the cities of Carlsbad and Oceanside, was designated California’s first Ecological Reserve in 1969. From far inland, along Buena Vista Creek, this ancient watershed nourishes the only fresh water lagoon in San Diego County, offering shelter, food and nesting habitat to a vast variety of birds and animals.

The Buena Vista Audubon Society along with several other groups is going to appeal Oceanside’s decision to the California Coastal Commission. For more info visit the Buena Vista Audubon Society Thursday September 27, 2007 at 7:30 p.m. at the Nature Center, 2202 S. Coast Highway, Oceanside.
