Three members of the Oceanside Chamber Staff: Kristi, Vannie and Quinton, decided on an impromptu sight-seeing trip for unique views of Oceanside and one-of-a-kind photo opportunities. Waverider Helicopter Tours made it happen and exceeded our expectations.
Oceanside's Measure Y, also known as the SOAR Initiative, has been defeated. With 100% of precincts reporting, 54% of Oceanside voters have rejected this initiative that would have "required voter approval of proposals to change land use designation or zoning in agricultural or open space land to any other use."
The Oceanside Chamber, along with local farmers, and City Council candidates, led the effort over several months to spread the word about the negative impact this measure would have on economic development and property rights. This past spring, the Chamber's Business and Community Political Action Committee commissioned an economic impact study on SOAR to highlight its threat to farming as well as a wide variety of opportunity costs this measure could pose. The report is still available at www.OceansideSOARStudy.com.
