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!

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!

RP – This beach is a little treasure among the Pt. Loma community! Please do not destroy the memories of so many who grew up and still use this beach! It would be a travesty!

SH – This is a special place for the community to walk, swim and keep an eye on nature.

DD – My family and I have enjoyed this beautiful beach for several generations. Sometimes decision makers should place emphasis on their residents love of community and the natural beauty of a beach/area such as Kellogg’s a priority over the developer who only wants to rape an area for their own greed. Please reconsider this project and leave this area untouched. Its natural beauty is what makes the area so desirable and unique.

CR – We love Kellogg beach, it’s great to have a local spot, perfect for kiddos and kayaking.

WH – As a native to the Point Loma community, let us have a voice in the development of this cherished public beach. Multi unit dwellings have the potential to overwhelm.

JK – We do not need more density and traffic in an area where egress is already compromised.

AT – This infuriates me! I grew up and still live in Point Loma and Kellogg Beach has always been one of our family’s favorite spots! To think that some greedy and ignorant developers would try to build a monster and ruin so much of what is La Playa is absolutely not okay! We must stop this from happening!

CS – I visit this beach regularly with my sons. It’s an integral part of the fabric of San Diego and San Diego Bay. This development would dramatically detract from our family’s ability to continue to make use of this public beach. The city and Point Loma community were wise to keep this beach public and out of private hands many years ago. Let’s not let short term personal gain infringe on this vision.

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.
