Save Pacific View! Donated land, given to locals "for the children" and future generations should not be privatized for more high density development. The highest and best use is NOT about a one time injection of money for "rainy day reserves" into the District's facilities improvement funds. The highest and best use would be to allow the City to purchase at $1 million over the current appraisal, using local comps, in current zoning, for a true community arts and learning center. Superintendent Baird has been in North County for less than five years. He doesn't understand the significance of this irreplaceable, historical asset, part of our community character and our heritage. Baird, while superintendent for Ojai Unified School District tried to prevent that community from building a surplus schoolsite there, even though the skatepark had the support of many volunteers, the police dept. and the City of Ojai. When Baird was recruited to replace Superintendent Lean King, in EUSD, in late 2009, the Ojai community was able to realize their vision and build the skatepark! Baird had wanted a "one time injection of money" in Ojai by selling that property to would-be strip mall style developers. Encinitas voters passed Prop A, in June of last year. No matter who is trying to rezone property, including a School District or the County, the public is now entitled to vote when public/semi-public is proposed to be rezoned to commercial, mixed use, or residential.
