   Oak Creek Project Comment- Tentative Certification No.

request for amendments
Dear
Mr. Monji and Mr. Becker,
My
office has followed the Oak Creek Housing development project in Escondido for
several years.  While the project has both supporters and opponents, one
issue has emerged that I respectfully request you to consider. 
I
understand that the proposed mitigation for impacts to water quality in the
creek and the riparian habitat are proposed to occur at the San Luis Rey River,
a different watershed than where the impacts will occur.  I urge your
office to investigate the opportunities to mitigate in the Felicita Creek
watershed or, at a minimum, elsewhere in the San Dieguito River watershed.
As
the Third District County Supervisor representing this area, I know how
important cleaning up Felicita Park and its creek is to nearby residents. 
Targeting this sensitive and previously-disturbed habitat for mitigation makes
sense and will be embraced by local residents.  Thank you for your
consideration and willingness to evaluate this request.
Sincerely,

DAVE
ROBERTS
Third District Supervisor

San
Diego County Board of Supervisors
