We Need You for a Critical ReWild Phone Bank

We’ve learned the San Diego City Council will consider a settlement of the long-standing Campland lawsuit against the city in closed session this Tuesday, June 11, at 10 a.m.

In doing so, council could be unduly influenced to support the lengthy, five-year lease Campland is seeking in order to move their operations to De Anza Point – and thereby derail a critical component of the ReWild feasibility plan without any public discussion, and undo meaningful wetland restoration in northeast Mission Bay for years to come.

Can you join us for a phone banking effort this Friday (tomorrow), June 7, and Monday, June 10, from 1 to 4 p.m. at the San Diego Audubon offices?

We only need you to make a few calls, and we’ll provide you with a phone, script, coaching, and a list of who to call – along with snacks and pizza. And it’s just a few calls.

Join us at the San Diego Audubon office at 4010 Morena Blvd., San Diego, CA 92117.

In addition, we’re asking everyone to join us at San Diego City Hall this Tuesday, June 11, at 9:30 a.m. to make comments ahead of the closed session.

Also, the San Diego City Council Land Use and Housing Committee meets this Wednesday, June 12, at 1 p.m. This is also a critical meeting we need you at.

Wear your ReWild Mission Bay shirt and come in person to ensure our elected officials on the Land Use Committee – and the Environment Committee too – hear from us about our concern over the proposed five-year (!) lease extension for Campland at De Anza Point.

Remember, there is no crisis, and there is no emergency – the city can grant Campland, or any vendor, the ability to manage the De Anza RV Park with a simple month-to-month lease while the process of determining how the northeast corner of Mission Bay will be ReWilded continues through open government channels.

The ReWild Mission Bay feasibility study must be given full, deliberate consideration by the city so the concerns – and enthusiasm – for the proposal among our neighbors, friends and fellow San Diegans are taken into genuine consideration. Any attempt to head off the conversation before we have it is simply a backroom deal.

Please join ReWild Mission Bay at San Diego Audubon to make calls this Friday, June 7, and Monday, June 10, from 1 to 4 p.m. Please RSVP here.

Thank you for your continued support!
