We still need your help!

For those who care about Kellogg Beach and preserving it, preserving the beach access, slowing the erosion, etc. – please consider sending letters to the City, Port District and Coastal Commission.

We need your help today and we will make this very easy for you.

Below is a link to sample letters to the City, the Port District, and the Coastal Commission. These are rich text files (RTF) that should be easy to open and edit. You will see street addresses for snail mail (this can be very effective) and e-mail addresses, if you choose to simply e-mail. When sending to the City, via e-mail or other, please copy the names at the bottom of the letter.

IMPORTANT NOTES

Personalize the letters where possible. Make it your story, your concerns.
Try to put the information into your own words, not just a copy of the sample letter!
Public views should be protected by the City, but any private views you may have should not be mentioned as a concern.
Use the bullet points in sample letters to guide you with many/most of the relevant issues, but don’t be afraid to share more you may have and make it personal.
If e-mailing, please copy all of the names given for that particular agency (ie, City, Port District or Coastal Commission).
Consider advising them that you wish to be notified of any meetings or hearings where the public can attend.

Sending these letters and having the regulators and code enforcement people hear from the community is critical to this effort so they know we’re very concerned!

These are comments from people who have already signed the petition to SAVE KELLOGG BEACH. 

JH – San Diego is beautiful. Once we let developers completely bulldoze every aspect that made it beautiful, we lose the beautiful city we used to have. I support preservation of our beaches and city treasures.

MMR – I’m signing because we need to preserve our small, pockets of beaches. Enough condo development has occurred in La Playa. Let’s save this beach.

BC – This beach is a tiny little Jewel on San Diego Bay and only one of two sand beaches on the bay (not counting Coronado). The neighborhood around this beach is totally overcrowded and the last thing we need is nine or more condos stuck on the sand rising 30 feet and blocking Lawrence Street Beach access…

DM – We live in the neighborhood and love having a safe local spot for our kids.

KS – I don’t want to see Kellogg Beach spoiled with over-building, especially a monstrosity that will completely change the feel of the neighborhood.

SW – It’s a block from my house. I walk along there everyday with my dog. Friends and I walk down to enjoy the beauty frequently. It would be devastating to lose our beautiful beach to developers that are only interested in money.

MH – My family and I frequently walk at beautiful Kellogg beach and walking path. Wish to see it remain as is for generations to come.

Comments galore from people who have already signed the petition to SAVE KELLOGG BEACH. 

KA – Stop overdevelopment in San Diego! Here is already way too much traffic in Point Loma and in all beach communities. Please preserve what little space we have left in nature to enjoy in our dear community. Developers – go be money hoarders elsewhere.

AS – This is a delicate area of Point Loma. It is peaceful and provides solace. The project will block public view corridors that have existed for the enjoyment of the public. Second, the area does not support increased traffic and parking that will be caused if this multi-family project gets approved.

SS – This would be devastating to the environment – physically and socially. This should not happen.

SV – This small beach brings back great childhood and young adult memories. This project would destroy the charm and access to Kellogg Beach.

JDC – We walk along Kellogg Beach several times a week. It is beautiful and healthy. We fear this development will hinder access and destroy the beach through erosion – we have watched it happen week by week enabled by the sea wall to the south.

MKC – It’s a ridiculous idea to give this beach away to a select few for a huge project that will forever mar the character of this lovely spot.

MY – I grew up there. Leave the area as it was, not a new Miami Beach!

JS – Condo project will negatively affect this beautiful public beach with a seawall that will cause erosion and loss of public beach use.

DK – The boundaries of this area are too small, getting too populated. The small roads and small beaches are no longer able to accommodate more people. Needs to stop! Point Loma is a peninsula. Build elsewhere!

Again, here are MORE comments from people who have already signed the petition to SAVE KELLOGG BEACH. 

AD – The proposed seawall will create erosion of the remining beach and block public access any time other than very low tide. The proposed condo project will block public views.

CM – My husband’s grandparents met at Kellogg’s in the early 1920’s. Four generations in our family have loved this beach! Tradition + Treasure!

SL – It’s not in the public interest of those of us who live and are raising our children to over develop here in Point Loma, loss of a public beach to service and line the pockets of yet another overzealous property developer.
We cannot allow greed determine and lower our quality of life…

HD – Kellogg Beach is a gem in Point Loma – and having a three story condominium complex replace ONE residential unit will change the look and feel of the area. I worry about traffic and parking on the very narrow San Antonio Avenue. I worry about the public access to the beach. And, like others, I worry about how adding a seawall will eventually erode the beach (as has happened recently before at the foot of Kellogg Street).

CL – This beach is a treasure. This proposed condo complex will ruin it and the neighborhood. It will erode the beach, deny access to the public and destroy the view corridor, create parking issues in the neighborhood.

DD – Kellogg Beach was (and is) an alternative to the “touristy” beach scene. Always complete with conversation and culture as well as events of the day. San Diego bay visuals and clean blue ocean out past Point Loma and Coronado.

VS – Took my kids to that beach many times. Great memories and I hope to save it for future generations.

MG – Disgusted that the city would allow the development of this area and to ruin this beloved community beach!!! Stop the overdevelopment of our beautiful little community! This beach has been enjoyed by all for generations…

Here are still MORE comments from people who have already signed the petition to SAVE KELLOGG BEACH. 

JC – My mom learned to swim at Kellogg’s – we need to protect it for the future.

JP – Our kids spent summers at Kellogg beach and we and we want it preserved for our grandkids to enjoy.

DA – I grew up in Point Loma since 1960 plus I was fortunate to take my children to Kellogg’s Beach every summer since 1982.
I now use Kellogg’s weekly to access the bay and paddleboard or just swim.
This development will impact access for everyone, locals and those in surrounding area…

RS – This is the wrong place for such a high impact development. All of San Diego will be affected by this. Kellogg Beach is one of the top 10 safe beaches in San Diego county. Developing here would annihilate this public jewel.

SV – This project is too big for the lot and will cause erosion parking problems and loss of public views and loss of public beach access.

MT – I used to live there and enjoyed this place. Why do you need MORE condos when there are plenty that can’t even keep max occupancy? This is a wonderful place and holds great memories for me and new ones for those living there.

JR – This is a special place that must be preserved – for the marine life and the people of San Diego. It’s already been over built to the extent the aesthetics have been compromised – but the beach has remained pretty much the same. It would be a crime to allow any further land development to negatively impact the beach even in the slightest.

DS – This new building confronts the water/tide break, will be a sight menace and disrupt the present walking patterns on the bay.
