SANDAG public meetings and subcommittee meetings are scheduled and cancelled at the discretion of Executive Director Hasan Ikhrata. We reached out to Coronado’s representative at SANDAG, Mayor Richard Bailey for explanation for cancellation of the RHNA August 23rd meeting. Mayor Bailey informed us that no specific reason was included with the cancellation announcement, and the mayor declined to speculate. In addition to being Coronado’s SANDAG representative, Richard Bailey is the appointed South County Representative to the Regional Housing Needs Assessment Subcommittee. The RHNA Subcommittee meetings originally scheduled for July 26 and August 23 were also cancelled. At present, this RHNA Subcommittee’s next scheduled meeting is at 12 noon, September 27, 2019.

Still Time for Citizen Action

It is not too late to make your voice heard regarding the number of high density housing units (1001) the draft of SANDAG RHNA indicates Coronado should build. For more detailed information and background, see SANDAG Reverses RHNA Decision and INCREASES Housing Density Demands on Coronado.

When asked for comment, Mayor Bailey pointed out:

This is the most consequential decision facing our community and we need to make our voices heard. Coronado has never shied away from doing our fair share for regional efforts, but this proposal defies common-sense and we must stand against it.

Our Coronado citizens, Navy personnel, and veterans must speak out about the RHNA high density housing methodology and encourage others to do so as well. If possible, plan to attend the 9 am SANDAG RHNA meeting on September 6, located at 401 B Street, San Diego, CA 92101. Parking is available in the Wells Fargo Bank Building at the location, or take the ferry.
