    Re: Adelante Townhomes. As a resident of Bird Rock I am disheartened to hear that one of the prime commercial corners in Bird Rock is proposed to deviate from the established PDO Zone requirements to include retail or service oriented businesses. The “spot zoning” requested by this development break the PDO and has no precedence in the core of Birdrock. The argument of excess retail/service space and the attachments to the presentation package of the current retail vacancy is misleading at best, overdramatizing and not getting the back story on many of the ownership entities that either have plans to reopen like the “All About Animals” space or “Station Sushi” that is in rehab now. Some space can be considered obsolete with disinterested owners unwilling to improve; they lose money, that is too bad.
    There should not be any correlation to the project being reviewed. New properly designed retail and service space will lease quickly as the “Pedego” and “Be Seen” proved. Modern attractive retail/service space will encourage walkability and commerce. It will also encourage current owners to see the value in improving their assets. Envision a highly used corner and tenant similar to Starbucks or Pedego. Those developments played within the current rules, Adelante should also.

    Traffic and Transportation Meeting March 21 2023 Comment re Agenda Item 3 Coast Walk Request to Advocate for Study

    Coast Walk has become much better known throughout San Diego and the country since the publicity surrounding improvement to the conditions of the trail. I support Brenda Fake in this and her efforts are much appreciated. Along with the improvements have come increased visitors accessing the trail by driving onto Coast Walk from Torrey Pines Road, adding to the already congested traffic situation due to weekly City of San Diego trash collection and normal access activity. Residents have necessarily found the need to park vehicles on Coast Walk also. Many Mondays I have witnessed trash collection trucks blocking two lanes of traffic on Torrey Pines Road as the truck attempts to back into Coast Walk from Torrey Pines Road. As is often the case, vehicles are parked along Coast Walk making this extremely difficult. As undesirable as it is for trash collection vehicles to block Torrey Pines Road, looking at the narrowness and lack of turn-around on Coast Walk, it becomes clear why trash collection trucks need to do this. Narrow roads such as this exist throughout La Jolla, but fortunately not often configured in this way on such a highly used access to the Village. As the City institutes additional collection routes to accommodate the State’s composting requirements, the volume of truck traffic will increase. Note that often other narrow roads such as this are private and therefore City of San Diego trash collection vehicles would not be collecting there. Due to the high volume of traffic and the unique dynamic at the intersection of Coast Walk and Torrey Pines Road, this situation warrants the attention that a study would give it. For that reason, I support a Study of Coast Walk. Thank you, Kathleen Neil
