Re your editorial "Wetlands Bill Misses Mark" (May 10):
Your overall conclusions about the cited bill are absolutely on target. SB 1517, an amazing bit of legalistic mumbo-jumbo, would create a feudal landowner right here in Orange County, next door to Huntington Beach.
I propose that we who love the Wetlands and want them preserved and protected accomplish an end-run maneuver: acquisition of the entire 1,600 acres in question, especially Signal's portion.
We should then place these protective acreages into a perpetual conservation trust. The city, the county and the state should coordinate with the Nature Conservancy acting as liaison among all parties concerned. This is a solution in which all parties win.
