Four main reasons to vote No on Prop J

By Linda Holland
Del Mar

I plan to vote No on Prop J in Del Mar for four main reasons:

1) If Prop J becomes law, Del Mar residents will no longer have a vote on large-scale development in downtown Del Mar. This is of particular concern in regard to the City Hall property and to the Post Office. The Postal Service announced in January 2012 that it will close and sell the La Jolla post office on Wall Street. If the Del Mar post office were also to be closed, the residents of Del Mar would have no vote on what was built on the property. It could be, for example, a two-story parking garage.

2) It would be very sad indeed if long-standing businesses such as the copy center, dog groomer and the next door sandwich shop, which does a brisk business at lunch time, were put out of business because the owner of the building decided to replace the buildings with large, two-story ones.

3) When roundabouts were installed in La Jolla, business at Bully’s South fell off to the point that the restaurant was closed. It would be unfortunate if the same fate befell businesses along Camino Del Mar.

4) Reducing Camino Del Mar to one lane each way, roundabouts or no, is likely to shunt even more through traffic as well as emergency vehicles onto residential streets such as Coast Blvd. and Stratford.
