City of Coronado Lifeguard Building Approval, Proposition B (February 2008)
Proposition B authorized the construction of a 2,574 square foot lifeguard/public safety service building on the Coronado beach.
Proposition B was on the same February 5 ballot as Proposition A. Proposition A, a citizen-initiated measure, sought to require voter pre-approval before any buildings could be built on Coronado beach. It was defeated. Proposition A, however, is the reason that Proposition B was referred to the February 5 ballot by the City of Coronado's city council -- because it would have provided the very pre-approval for a lifeguard building that Proposition A, if it had been approved, would have mandated.
In the text of Proposition B, it said, "That should the citizens' initiative (Proposition A) submitted to the voters at the same election as this initiative, amending the land use plan of the City of Coronado Local Coastal Program, fail to receive a majority of affirmative votes then, in that event, this initiative shall be deemed null and void, and of no further force and effect."
- These final, certified, results are from the San Diego County elections office.
The question on the ballot:
|Proposition B: "In the event that Proposition A shall be approved by a majority of the voters of the City of Coronado, shall the construction of the Lifeguard Public Safety Service Building at Coronado Beach be approved?"|
