The fight against THIS One Paseo is not over. We’ve joined other San Diegans concerned about the dangerous precedent the approval of One Paseo sets for the rest of the City to form a new citizens group named Protect San Diego’s Neighborhoods to launch a referendum campaign on the City Council’s decision.

Together, we developed a referendum petition to put this issue on the ballot so that the voters of San Diego can consider the future of One Paseo – and the future of development throughout the City.

On March 25, 2015, Protect San Diego’s Neighborhoods turned in more than 60,000 signatures to the City Clerk demonstrating the strong, city-wide opposition to One Paseo. The City Clerk has 30 days to verify the campaign’s signatures. Please check back soon for updates.

Proposed for the southwest corner of Del Mar Heights Road and El Camino Real, the One Paseo project includes more than 1.4 million square feet of development, three times what was originally planned for the 23.6-acre site. The project has been advertised as a “main street” for Carmel Valley, however its urban size and scale directly conflict with our community.

Every community member stands to lose if this project is approved. One Paseo proposes buildings as high as 150 feet and will cause terrible traffic jams on our roads. It will create dangerous conditions for pedestrians and cyclists and will amplify parking frustration for visitors to the area. It will expand Del Mar Heights Road to accommodate nine lanes of traffic. It is not smart growth development and may never be linked to public transit.

Together we can make our community voice heard and stop One Paseo. The community planning groups of Carmel Valley, Torrey Pines, Torrey Hills and Del Mar Mesa, as well as the San Diego Planning Commission, have already rejected One Paseo as proposed. We hope this website will help you understand One Paseo’s many negative impacts and give you the tools to help stop it.
