Straight from the Thursday paper- UT...
"Officials are assessing 37 city fountains, including the popular 'gusher' in front of the Reuben H. Fleet Science Center in Balboa Park..."
and here's where Sarah chimes in:
"Large showy fountains appear inconsistent with both the efforts to change San Diegan's water consumption and with the sacrifices the city is going to ask San Diegans to make....so closing highly visible fountains in public places would support municipal efforts to reduce water overall."
How about continuing to allow developers (no offense, I am the daughter of a great developer) to build massive and unnecessary housing tracts all over our county- is that consistent with your "efforts"? Have I gone completely mad, or is no one else privy to the fact that we cannot even support our taxpayers in this county, let alone all the people we're inviting in by the droves. Wouldn't it make much more sense to consider a moratorium on our residential and commercial buildings, rather than punish the community by removing or shutting down some of their favorite monuments??
I'm all for conservation- don't get me wrong. I simply do not agree with cutting back on recycled water fountains that add such an ambiance to our city... rather than cutting back on building permits and pensions for fat community leaders.
