The city put this small notice up in areas that are not very visible, but does provide legal posting.
It would seem that a radical change, such as this, that will negatively effect so many property owners any where near the proposed Sports Park, should publicize this proposed change in the general plan more reasonably.
As I recall, since the lighting plan is not available on the City web site, this plan would include a massive lighting program with varied light standards up to 90 feet high, operating possibly till 9pm.
Excerpt from the Hall E.I.R.
ISSUES TO BE RESOLVED
There are various issues regarding the development and design of the Hall Property Community Park
project that need to be resolved by the decision-making body. One issue that requires resolution is
the option to have night lighting of the athletic fields. This is an area of controversy among the
Encinitas community. The use of athletic field lighting is analyzed in this EIR. One project alternative
is the development of the park without the athletic field lighting. The City Council will decide whether
to adopt the project with athletic field lighting. If the project were to be adopted with athletic field
lighting, the City would also be required to approve a General Plan Amendment, Local Coastal Plan
Amendment, and Zoning Amendment to allow the light poles to be installed as they would exceed thecurrent regulatory height restrictions.
