I must say that Lou Murray was right on about the proposed construction on the Bolsa Chica Mesa ("More like a 'heart attack for the mesa,'" Natural Perspectives, Feb. 10). Not enough scrutiny has gone into the project as of yet. It involves too many changes in the landscape, and thus the habitats involved, not to warrant at least an Environmental Impact Report.
It is, by the way, sponsored by the same group at Bolsa Chica that is the first to be heard when any type of effort is made to do anything on or near the wetlands. Nevertheless, they plan to move forward with these controversial changes and avoid their own type of scrutiny.
These modifications to the existing mesa would involve the active habitats of the Great Blue Heron and the local families of coyotes that are active on the Lower Mesa. Those same coyotes may then be forced to roam the neighborhoods close by. Many other controversial changes, such as trail building and windmill placement, speak for themselves in the eyes of environmentalists.
