Regarding the article, “Re-circulation of Carmel Valley One Paseo project EIR to be released” posted online Oct. 23, 2013, it strikes me that the smallest of the alternatives to One Paseo is nothing more than a non-descript, traffic-inducing strip mall. Enough is enough. A lot of us are very tired of this fight, and would hope that the decision makers in our city wouldn’t waste the time and resources on discussing whether a strip mall is appropriate for this site in the heart of Carmel Valley. Clearly, it is not in my opinion. The best alternative is the one that reduces One Paseo but keeps the Main Street environment and a village atmosphere that will serve our community.
