Kilroy has been responsible; One Paseo will be wonderful

Maureen Hennessey
Carmel Valley

I believe that One Paseo presents an excellent opportunity for Carmel Valley residents to embrace smart, prospective city planning. As our community continues to grow, it makes most sense to meet local needs in a way that fosters economic growth, promotes environmental sustainability, and that brings locals together, rather than keeping families isolated in suburbs. The creation of One Paseo will create jobs and local tax revenue, provide a pedestrian-friendly center to our community, and bring shops and dining options (like a Trader Joe’s hopefully!) close to home so that people won’t have to make as many driving trips out of the neighborhood anymore.

This project will fill an important gap in Carmel Valley, but it will do so in a way that is in keeping with the close-knit character of our community. I am impressed with the level of community involvement in the design of One Paseo, and I have every confidence that as new information about any traffic or environmental impacts emerge, these considerations will be addressed in a transparent, responsible way. I understand that Kilroy is already committed to spending millions in order to efficiently handle new traffic, just as they are committed to using the highest standards in “green” building.

I would like to see this project move forward so that we can finally enjoy a community-gathering place of our own.

    I agree that Carmel Valley needs a world-class village center that is in keeping with the close-knit character of our community, BUT that's NOT what One Paseo is. One Paseo is a massively dense development of high-rise towers and residential blocks that look much more like downtown. In fact, it's denser than almost all of the Gaslamp District in San Diego! We need a smaller village, something that actually fits within the community's character, not this Los Angeles Infill Project proposed by Kilroy.

    Why would a Trader Joe's be so great there? There is already a Jimbo's and Ralphs at The Higlands. Perhaps it would be better to develop in the land that is set aside for development at the intersection of Carmel Valley Road and Del Mar Heights near all the new Pacific Higland Ranch neighborhoods that are being built now.

    Why is One Paseo needed in that corner? The Higlands center has 2 supermarkets, movies, and restaurants. A Trader Joe's does not seem like a necessary development. However the intersection of Del Mar Heights Rd. and Carmel Valley Drive has a proposed development area that would be a welcome and much needed addition with all the houses being built in Pacific Highland Ranch.
