Santa Monica Observer - Community, Diversity, Sustainability and other Overused Words



February 17, 2014

February 20, 2014

Dear SMCLC Supporter,

A week ago the Santa Monica City Council, on a 4-3 vote, approved one of the largest developments in recent Santa Monica history: the Hines project at 26th and Olympic. There is now a community-wide effort to qualify a referendum for the ballot so Santa Monica residents can vote on whether this project should go forward.

According to its own Environmental Impact Report (EIR), the Hines project will add approx. 7,000 new daily car trips to our already congested streets. This project will severely impact many intersections and the quality of life for Santa Monica residents.

Santa Monica residents are currently gathering signatures of registered Santa Monica voters to qualify the referendum to stop this disastrous new development. If you haven't signed the petition, we urge you please do so.

Signing is easy. This Saturday, there will be signing places all over Santa Monica. Please go to any of the following to help get this important referendum on the ballot.
