The San Diego City Council already voted to approve the One Paseo project in Carmel Valley. But signatures have been gathered to put One Paseo to a Referendum. Opposition anchors its argument that the new shopping area will increase traffic on El Camino Real and Del Mar Heights Road. Most of this traffic growth is a result of the mixed used (living and shopping) that is planned for the site. You know, the condensed living that the left wants everyone to live in. The same plan that is supposed to reduce traffic and pollution.
I support One Paseo. Yes, traffic will increase. Its going to increase anyway, so I might as well get something out of it. Carmel Valley is an oddity in San Diego, its about 20 minutes from everything but there isn’t much there. So if you complain about traffic, try going out for dinner. You are surrounded by a wall of automobiles stopped on the 5, 805, 56 and the 101! One Paseo has the potential to let you out of your house and eat somewhere besides the limited and crowded offering at Del Mar Highlands Town Center without dealing with the even worse freeway traffic. Carmel Valley needs more by us. It will keep us off the freeways contributing to that traffic. It increases the desirability of an already desirable community that oddly has too little in the area for dinner. Support One Paseo.
