Measure E will focus new growth into the existing Marina City limits via an urban growth boundary (UGB), including lands of the former Fort Ord. Measure E will protect the coast and stop a proposal to turn the Armstrong Ranch into a 3500 home subdivision. At the same time the City is updating its General Plan.
LandWatch engages in the public process in a variety of ways. For this project, here is a list of our engagement strategies.
- Letter: Comments on the Implementation of Measure E (45K PDF)
LandWatch submitted comments after the public voted to support Measure E. The three suggestions included: following the timeline outlined in the Measure, using the existing and newly adopted General Plan which incorporates the content of the Measure, and not simply applying an overlay for the urban growth boundary.

- Letter: Objections to the Certification of the Environmental Impact Report and Adoption of the General Plan (25K PDF)
LandWatch raised concerns that public comments, including ours, were ignored and that the Environmental Impact Report should respond to the concerns. (11.02.00)
- Letter: Comments on the Marina General Plan (139K PDF)
LandWatch requests the City of Marina respond to these comments, and the comments of other organizations, agencies, and individuals, by revising and recirculating the Draft EIR. We believe this is necessary because of the need for significant new information and analysis, properly and adequately to identify potential adverse environmental impacts, and to recommend appropriate mitigation measures.
