Sometimes life is better without development

I remember about 35 years ago heavy equipment operators came to Ocean Beach and began to dig in the sand. People protested fiercely, and the digging stopped. I visited that place two days ago. The wide blue sky is unobstructed, and dogs and children and adults move about in the meandering blue inlets that lead to the San Diego River. A lot more people enjoy this place, which is now Dog Beach, than if it had become a marina. I hope Chula Vista will have similar good fortune in preserving its natural beauty.
