Keep One Paseo within allowed zoning

Anyone urging a green light for the One Paseo project may not be aware of three important facts.

1) The zoning allowed for that land parcel in San Diego’s Community Plan is 510,000 square feet. Kilroy, developer of One Paseo, first proposed a four-fold density increase (over 2 million square feet). After Carmel Valley’s outcry and the environmental impact negative report, Kilroy scaled it down to a three-fold increase.

2) This proposed project is over 10 times as dense as the Ralph’s shopping plaza directly across the street (Del Mar Highlands Town Center). If allowed, One Paseo will be bigger than the entire Westfield/UTC shopping center in La Jolla.

3) The increased traffic from One Paseo will be more than five times greater than allowed. The nearby I-5 entrance is already jammed during commuting hours, and access would be a nightmare for Carmel Valley and Del Mar residents.

I live directly across the street (Del Mar Highlands development) from the proposed One Paseo, and our 200-plus homeowners are overwhelmingly opposed to this project’s three-fold density increase. We would not mind a project that accepts the allowed zoning. We will oppose one that is three times larger than allowed.
