As you may already know, the San Diego City Planning Commission showed its true colors by ignoring a unanimous decision by our dedicated CMR/SS Community Council to reject the current Alante Project proposal. Brian's stellar presentation fell upon deaf ears.
HERE'S THE GOOD NEWS:
The City Planning Commission's recommendation is just that, a recommendation to be considered by San Diego City Council members when casting the final vote.
We must communicate our strong opposition to the Alante project with a tsunami of email correspondence and phone calls from you, the community. .
Here's what we've done to help you participate in reaching that goal:
We've simplified the process for emailing city council members.
Just follow the step-by-step instructions below.
Open up your email browser and create a new email message.
Select, Copy, & Paste the council member's email address and following subject line into the appropriate fields:
Subject: RE: Project 648597 - Alante CPA/PDP/RZ
Preferably one email per council member for maximum impact
Select, Copy, & Paste the following into the top portion of your email:
Dear Council Member [Insert Council Member's Name Here],
Write your objections to the project in the main body of the email (ideally 200 words or less)
* If you are having trouble getting started, browse through some of the sample letter links below.
These sample letters were created by our own Karen Vogue and Jacqueline Aussie. Thank you, both!
Copy & Paste key points into the letter if it helps you get started.
Remember, the email should be short and sweet. 200 words or less.
Step #5: Final Step
Sign your name digitally at the bottom, including your property address, and press send.
Thank you for your consideration.

Carmel Mountain Ranch is a 1,489-acre master-planned community in San Diego's North County. More than 12,000 residents make their home in this quiet, but vibrant community.
CMR is located east of Rancho Peñasquitos, south of Rancho Bernardo, north of Sabre Springs, and west of Poway. On the San Diego City Council, CMR is represented by Councilmember Mark Kersey (District 5).
Fun fact: Carmel Mountain Ranch (CMR) is actually closer to Black Mountain than Carmel Mountain, which is 10 miles to the west.
The Carmel Mountain Ranch area was once part of a Mexican land grant that dates to the 1820s. In 1905, the Carmelite Sisters of Mercy established a dairy farm and monastery in the area. Carmel Mountain, a Biblical reference to Mount Carmel, takes its names from the nuns.
In 1984, the San Diego City Council approved and adopted the first Carmel Mountain Ranch Community Plan.
