San Diego Explained: Encinitas' Density Duel

In this week’s San Diego Explained, NBC 7 San Diego’s Monica Dean and Voice of San Diego’s Maya Srikrishnan explain a controversial measure in Encinitas.

A battle’s been brewing in Encinitas over a city ballot measure.

Measure T would allow higher-density housing developments in parts of the city.

Some residents strongly oppose the measure. They say the plan won’t actually allow more low-income housing to be built and that private developers will just build expensive homes that don’t fit in Encinitas.

They also says the measure will increase traffic, make parking more difficult, ruin community character and take control away from residents.

City officials say Encinitas has a lot to lose if the measure doesn’t pass. The measure would bring the city in to compliance with state housing law and encourage the production of more affordable housing.
