Opinion/Letters to the Editor: Traffic impacts clear

On the subject of traffic impacts of the proposed regional commercial center on Carmel Valley, I don’t need to see an array of mathematical formulas or the city’s report to know that the One Paseo development, as planned by the developer, will have a significant adverse effect on local traffic. I can use some common sense. Here are some stats on parking spaces, which equates to cars and resulting traffic: Del Mar Highlands Town Center: 1,458 spaces; Horton Plaza: 2,189 spaces; San Diego Convention Center: 3,950 spaces. The One Paseo plan is projected to have a MINIMUM of 4,089 spaces. Clear now?
