So, One Paseo will include a Trader Joe's. This single store is about 15,000 SF in a sea of nearly 200,000 SF of retail -- 200,000 SF of retail that will significantly impact our quality of life! The question is, are we really willing to gift One Paseo the rights to build this massive urban development, when a Trader Joe's would fit quite nicely into a much smaller center? That's the way I see this, a gift to a Los Angeles-based developer who is looking to make huge profits off of our community. Are we really willing to live with 3 or 4 times as many cars from this site? Hundreds of new residents without adequate parks to serve them? Out-of-scale buildings giving an urban feel to a suburban community? Sure, we want a mixed-use development, some new restaurants, a Trader Joe's, and more jobs! But, we also want to maintain the quality of life for people who live in Carmel Valley outside of One Paseo! We need a development that fits within the limited roads in our community, and provides us with benefits that outweigh the impacts.
