Vote ‘No’ on Prop J and save money!

A “Yes” vote on Prop J on Nov. 6 means two things, maybe, plus the possibility of a third.

1.  You will pay at least $5 million to get the main street reduced from two lanes each way to one lane each way with three roundabouts, plus signals at 15th & 16th with unknown results.

2.  You get the possibility that private property owners will build 220,000 square feet of additional buildings, including a lot more new restaurant/bars.  Nothing is required.

3.  If #1 doesn’t work out, as happened in Claremont, Calif., in 2004, the possibility is you get to pay several million dollars to remove the roundabouts and re-open the main street to two lanes each way, with synchronized signals.

What’s wrong with this plan?  Mainly #2 above.

The property owners asked for a more reasonable amount of building allowed on their property, but are not clamoring for this plan, because of all the onerous costs and hoops to go through to get it.  Therefore, you have not heard any clamoring to revitalize!

Also, restaurants don’t work without an ABC license, and the ABC laws say a license can’t be issued to a location within 100 feet of a residence.  That shoots down all the new restaurants!  Vote “No” on Prop J and save money!
