The water is pulled from the river, Correct? So you sit on a veranda of an "Interested big name eatery" and that wonderful smell that we experience from time to time at the river when the algae is at full force comes along to enhance your dining experience. Sounds nice.
Hotel chain to build there? Laying in your bed and the trains come through. Has anyone been in that area when they come through? Does Carlsbad really believe they will stop trains at certain hours of the night not to disturb the patrons? Whatever.

You guys are just cranky because life is passing you sorry behinds by. Like a friend of mine says: You'll probably be dead when it opens, so nobody cares about you or your worthless spewing.

CASCADES....gor for it!!!!

Swift justice is correct...the water used will be from the river. The city made a deal with the state to use their cid water rights to supply the water for their pond. They will pump it from the river and return it to the river. No city drinking water will be involved.

The first time it was filled with city water. It was PRIOR to the deal being made with the State Engineer Office to pump and replace the water from the River. Now that the deal has been struck, all future water will be pumped and circulated from the river, through the cascades and back into the river. It's how they choose to use their cid water on this particular tract of land.

Actually it is you that is wrong, Bundy. Check your facts before you post. It is river water that will be flowing through the Cascades, not drinking water.

More stagnate pools of mosquito homeland. Have you seen (or should I say smelled_ that nasty cesspool next to the carousel house. Stinks, looks nasty, full of trash and sludge, surely the air around it cant be good for breathing. Just what Carlsbad needs, more stinking water holes.
Palm Trees

Just curious whose stupid idea it is to put palm trees all over Carlsbad? Since when have palm trees been native to our region. Shouldn't the highways and lake areas be filled with native plants...such as the beautiful Yucca or Prickly Pear, instead of these ridiculous palm trees covered in tin foil.

personally I like the palm trees...Palm trees stand up to the gale force winds we experience in Carlsbad...they are a great addition to the allure of our town.

Um no, people ask me all the time why we have palm trees when we are in the desert. Try asking a tourist sometime what they think of the palm trees. Yucca and other native plants stand up well to the winds in Carlsbad as well. They look out of place in this desert town. Allure to our town...we aren't on the beach aka little Miami.

I agree. Add to your list any number of native oaks, maples and walnuts. For shrubs there are junipers, desert mahogany, hackberry, allthorn, acacia, mesquite, algerita, apache plume, and so many more. I am sure that the folks at the Living Desert would be happy to consult with the city landscapers.

Palm trees are beautiful but in their place. LA and Phoenix are really sad with all their exotic palms.

There are palms in the deserts of Arabia...but maybe something like the desert willow would be more appropriate.
