Below is a computer generated image of the South Elevation of the Whitney Mixed Use Building.
LJCPA Trustee Phil Merten and La Jolla Shores Permit review committee member Dale Naegle both took the LJCPA oath of office which states; …” I will uphold the highest standards of community service, that I will fairly and impartially consider all points of view, that I will refrain from self-interest, that I will respect all those with whom and for whom I serve”…. Despite the oath taken, they created the “The Big White Lie” seen below.
It was Mr. Naegle’s wife, in conjunction with La Jolla Shores Tomorrow President Mr. Vaughn Woods, who distributed this false image throughout the neighborhood to garner support against the Whitney building to protect the Naegle’s private view from their three-story home.
Trustee Merten’s presented “The Big White Lie” to La Jolla community and the City of San Diego decision makers, including the La Jolla Shores Association, the City of San Diego Development Service Staff, the City of San Diego Hearing Officer, the City of San Diego Planning Commission and the San Diego City Council in an attempt to influence their decision against the project. So much for; “I will refrain from self-interest, that I will respect all those with whom and for whom I serve”
