WhatPriceMainStreet is a broad-based coalition of community residents dedicated to discover and disseminate important factual information regarding the project, to enable the City Council to make a reasoned decision based on consideration of all the material issues. Most WhatPriceMainStreet supporters would welcome a change from the One Paseo site’s current office only entitlement to an appropriate mixed-use project, provided it's of a size and scale that can be supported by the community’s infrastructure, and is in keeping with Carmel Valley's current character.
Kilroy claims that their traffic studies show that everything will be fine after the project is completed. However, if you actually look at their traffic studies, you'll find that there is a gap in the data, and it's big enough to drive a truck through! The gap is the 15 year period from 2015 (when the project is "built") to the future year 2030 (when the I-5 to SR-56 connector is "completed".) Kilroy's study ignores this gap period, telling us that things will be fine before and they will be fine after -- therefore everything is great. However, using their own numbers, you find massive congestion over this "missing" 15 year period. So, are you willing to live with gridlock for the next 15 years with the hope that it MIGHT get better in 2030?
There is an update to the One Paseo DEIR, which includes alternatives that were not in the Original One Paseo DEIR. Because this is new information, new comments are being accepted on the updates. Comments are due on December 10, 2013. The important documents are the Notice of Availability and the New One Paseo Alternatives. Read the full story for the DEIR documents.
We are not a "no development" group. Instead, we're looking for an appropriate village for Carmel Valley. Imagine a small town main street where the residential buildings are 2 or 3 stories high. We want a village planned in cooperation with the community that benefits everyone.
