Why don't we forget politics and afford the North and South ends of the sea the exact same benefits and opportunity for economic growth? The people say they can make their visions of a better economy happen. Lets give them a fighting chance.

With a smoke screen of making the salton sea better, is a plan to commerically develope a place that we all find to be a sanctuary. 6 billion of spending can only mean development beyond what we even know today as the salton sea. Shame on the people who do not understand this. Make sure this does not pass.

They can put a man on the moon, build 2 canals, 1 across a Desert and 1 from ocean to ocean. Why can they not clean up a mess that was needed done a very long time ago? Los Angles and San Diego want the water from the Sea.Won't that mean that they will have to clean up the water? They are closer to the ocean, so why not use that water as they do in other countries?
The Sea was a manmade mistake.With the technology they had back then the made it into a resort for all to use.Stocked it with fish,bussiness poped up and a haven was made.
Look up the word restore,this plan is a digusting (restore) if it goes thru. Millions spent on studies and nothing done.Now they want to destroy the Sea for profit.There are ways to clean it up and bring it back to life.Who's going to be the next Einstein or Hero and do of what is asked to be done?
We know what your doing and we will fight you all the way.You do not even live near the Sea yet you think you know whats best.Why not put it out to bid and reward them with the contract as Brad Pitt did for Louisiana,instead of letting your friends do it for a fee,or a blank check like Mr. Bush and Haliburton.It can be done.Your just looking in the wrong direction.

Whatever anyone does, please don't let the Salton Community Services District get their grubby paws in it. It'll cost 10 times more and will never, ever get done, after they skim their portion off the top. Check out the sewer system that they are supposedly in charge of. The one that the county has shut down any additional hook-ups because they haven't even enough capacity to handle the residents that are hooked-up to it now. Where's the involvement of the big environmental groups, like the SIERRA CLUB. Why aren't these organizations more vocal about restoring the Salton Sea. At least they could get involved to the same extent that they were about the absolutely worthless MONO LAKE!

My husband and I bought and built a home in 1986 at Desert Shores. This has been one of the best places I have ever lived! I love the sea! I can look out my windows and see the sea, birds and the beauty! IT's WORTH SAVING!!!!! THANK YOU GOD!
We spend billions on Foreign countries and can't find the money to take care of our own country!

First of all id like to introduce my self I am a 21 year old man that its looking foward in buying a commercial lot in salton sea and i appose and I am against all of those negative oppinions and comments on making Salton City a civilized and a very well built city of success in both counties Imperial and Riverside. I think is emmensively a Great Idea to unite both Counties. There will be great future plans for many Southern & Northern California Population and also opportunities for many people in different aspects. So, in my oppinion i agree that Salton City should Grow as big as possible the way I see it is that the Government has more too gain than to loose if they invest a few billions in a new area where it has a big future....

a real good thought--however the imperial county board of stupidvisors will not lend a hand. it is thier belief that anything north of westmorland is in another county. Yet they will spend tons of money to allow the drug additicis and homeless live in squander in niland and they will never do anything about the dude who poured paint all over the mountain at slab city, some of which is believed to contain a lead base.
no wonder the citizens of impeiral county want them recalled....
