    DPR April 20th Meeting Agenda Item 3. Brodiaea Way: The information on the Materials page is confusing. Please ask the applicant to clearly show what is the most current project information and what is older, especially with regard to the storm water,/drainage issues and DSD requirements for an amendment due to several sewer issues.

  2. John Beaver

    I’m strongly opposed to the Puesto expansion. A number of nearby restaurants have expanded on street parking. When there are new tenants next to Puesto, they will want parking. The Anthenium and sports club are opening and parking is critical. Restrictions are loosening and restaurants won’t need the on street space, but increased visitors will nee parking. Please oppose Puestos request.

    As a resident of La Jolla, I would like to express my strong opinion about the “Plaza Park” that is proposed as an extension to Puesto.

    The slash in parking spaces on Wall between the gym and Puesto is a big problem. The committee member’s response about “people who think they deserve to park in front of their favorite store” and comparing the Village to “other cities” is off base. We live here because it is not a city, it is a village and it offers the conveniences of a village.

    Secondly, rather than adding to the mass of commercial spaces we should be brainstorming how to creatively make use of all the abandoned storefronts that sit empty and depressed looking.

    This is not the time for more. We already have an abandoned plaza that sits empty at the corner of Wall and Girard. Smarter to repurpose what is here than to add more concepts and structures to the village.

    Lastly, a wooden deck does not a park make.

    In regard to the Cuvier Street project, I strongly recommend a fence and significant trees/bushes at the perimeter of the grass area facing Prospect Street for several reasons. Among them; safety, security, noise abatement, etc.

    Item 2. Brodiaea: Thank you to Island Arch. for the revised (information on Materials Page dated 4/19/2021) materials. The line-of-site page is especially helpful, but my concerns regarding View from Public (sandy beach along Kellogg Park and Scripps Pier) still exist. In addition, the storm water retention issue is not resolved; it appears the new proposed driveway will consume at least half of the area and the newly proposed retention area will not only be smaller by half, but will also be located upslope from most of the property when compared to what was originally proposed for the concrete basin storm water retention area (“pond” or “bio-filtration area”). This property is in a sensitive location and warrants special care for both view and storm water.

    Anyone who has travelled in the old cities of Europe know that the charm often comes from the cafe tables and chairs that spill onto the streets. Little Italy closed off one of their side streets with much success.

    Our attention in San Diego and La Jolla often focuses on the car and less on the atmosphere that can be created by sacrificing a few parking spots. It is preferable to sit outside without exhaust blowing in our faces while dining and sharing a cup of coffee with friends,
    The weather of Southern California is perfect to dine outside year round. It seems that the pandemic was needed to get a serious conversation going about this subject.

    I am a La Jolla Village resident and have thought that La Jolla could benefit from closing off certain streets for pedestrian traffic only.
    The Wall St. block that the restaurant Puesto resides would be a perfect small street to close off from automobile traffic. I also think that La Jolla Shores would benefit from closing off the block with the majority of restaurants on Avenida de la Playa.
    La Jolla is a walkable town and this would encourage more strolling and make the Village and the Shores much more attractive as destinations.
