Vote ‘No’ on fundamental changes to the area

Why is there so much uproar about One Paseo? Undoubtedly because it will fundamentally change the Carmel Valley-Del Mar area forever!

I don’t understand why there isn’t the same uproar over the proposed Del Mar Village Specific Plan! If you read it all, it will fundamentally change the small-town village of Del Mar forever!

Why are the owners of One Paseo proposing such a fundamental change? Obviously only one reason – money, at the expense of everything else!

Why is the Del Mar City Council proposing such a fundamental change? Obviously only one reason – money, at the expense of everything else!

These are but two strong similarities of the two proposed projects. Others include: Neither proposal was initiated, or requested by the public; both will, logically, create traffic, parking and pedestrian havoc (unless we all give up driving in favor of walking, bike riding and taking the bus); both will block views of surrounding residents; both are intended to replicate “a large European village” (all crammed in).

There are many other similarities, if you think about it, and there is nothing wrong with making money, but do areas really have to fundamentally change forever to make money, at the expense of everything else?

Let’s speak out and vote “No!”
