Westfield donates to group opposed to 8515 plan

Posted: Updated:

CARLSBAD (CBS 8) - There is a new twist Thursday night over a project that would build a shopping mall next to Agua Hedionda Lagoon in Carlsbad. 

The Westfield Corporation announced this week that it has donated $75,000 to Citizens for North County, the group that opposes that Agua Hedionda 8515 plan. 

Westfield owned the Plaza Camino Mall in Carlsbad until very recently when it sold it to rouse properties. Supporters of the 85/15 Initiative say Westfield's donation is a way to keep business out of Carlsbad and push shoppers toward its properties in La Jolla and Escondido. 

A special election to vote on the 85/15 plan is scheduled form February 23.
