Exclusive Breaking News Re: Morena Area Height Limit Controversy

The Clairemont Community News has just received copies of  two memos (see below), both dated April 23, 2014 regarding the controversial recommendations in the Morena Station Area Study about the height limit and parking in the area.

In the first, addressed to Bill Fulton, Director of Planning for the City of San Diego, Councilmember Lorie Zapf, who is Chair of the City's Smart Growth and Land Use Committee, states her unequivocal opposition to any changes to the current height limit or parking modifications.

The second memo, also dated April 23, 2014, Mr. Fulton responds with the statement that the Study has been revised to maintain the existing height limit, re-evaluate the density recommendations and maintain the parking along the west side of Morena Blvd.

Good news for those opposed to the changes originally recommended in the study!


  1. I only see one memo from Lorie Zapf to Bill Fulton.

  3. Dig into the past and you see that Lorie Zapf is doing the flippity floppity. But that's okay, we voters are watching and taking notes...

    1. You have a source link?

      Zapf never seemed like a Smart Growth central planner to me.

    2. Good article here:

  4. Congratulations to the people of Clairemont! Fight the power!

    We are facing similar issues from "Smart Growth" politicians and bureaucrats in Encinitas.


Thank you for your comment.
