Save Ponto By Attending The Carlsbad City Council Meeting Tonight!!

Ponto Vision Plan Will Impact Your Trip To One Of The Best Waves In North County.

Check out www.pontoaction.com/action.aspx to sign a petition to protect Ponto.

Due to the Carlsbad Canyon offshore, Ponto can be one of the best waves in San Diego County. We have seen Ponto break every bit as perfect as Indonesia, with long barreling lefts starting from the Jetty’s and ending 150 yards up the beach.

A new proposal from Carlsbad seeks to develop the parcels to the north of Ponto, into hotels, offices, and townhouses. The plan potentially impacts water quality, traffic, wildlife, and noise. It would undoubtedly strip the public’s ability to park for free to the east of the free way, or check the surf from the east side of the free way. Turning around after heading north, which is already a headache and dangerous, will be all but impossible.

The Carlsbad City Council will hear the plan and review the Mitigated Negative Declaration on June 28, 2005. The City Council meets at 6:00 p.m. in the Council Chambers at Carlsbad City Hall, 1200 Carlsbad Village Drive (map). We will be providing more information soon, including links to the Mitigated Negative Declaration.

Please contact our Chairman, Todd T. Cardiff at tcardiff@surfridersd.org for more information.
