SAN DIEGO, Nov. 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- County of San Diego voters have a very clear choice before them November 8.
The region is in the midst of the worst housing crisis in generations, with no end in sight. Nearly all housing experts agree, the best way to keep families together and pull the County out of this crisis, is to build more homes. Just building new homes however, without a clear vision for what's needed, won't solve this crisis.
Some developers just want to build a few luxury estates for the wealthy that will make traffic and pollution worse for our region. Others, like the development at the heart of Measure B, is arguably smartest way forward. Lilac Hills Ranch will be an eco-friendly community of villages that will provide affordable housing for middle-class families, first-time buyers and seniors.
Measure B is going before the voters of San Diego County this Tuesday. Gary London, a real estate and financial expert with the London Group said, "Measure B will be a paradigm for future County development. We need to understand that the housing developments of the past, with larger lots and heavy water landscaping, not only won't pull us out of this crisis, those developments will exacerbate the problem. We need our communities to have a bigger and better vision, and Measure B will provide that for the County."
Measure B will provide single-family homes, condos and senior living choices.
Gordon Carrier, a well known architect and Green Building expert said of Measure B: "The community has the highest rating that National Green Building Standard offers under its program for sustainability. I think it is among the most eco-friendly in the region."
- Measure B will fund a Water Recycling Plant and use less water than is currently being used on the site.
- Measure B will reduce GHG emissions by 30.4%.
- Measure B will be an eco-friendly community. It will preserve over 100 acres of natural open space, over 80 acres of agriculture and will restore and enhance over 18 acres of creeks and wetlands.
For these reasons and more, housing and financial experts are urging the voters of San Diego County to vote Yes on B. For more information go to https://yesforbetter.org/
