"There is no other design proposal for the community to review."

That's because the city never shared any information with the public, never had hearings, never considered alternatives to this boondoggle of a project. The city is a project sponsor and owner -- yet it not only has nothing to say about it, it does not want the public making any comments either.

I've only lived here 12 years, but I fail to see why it's such a big problem. What's the big deal with building in an extra 10-15 minutes for your commute when you move to Linda Mar or points south? If you already live here, you're used to it, right? Why do we need it? Why did you move to the coast and expect commute speeds like 280? It's the small-town vibe that attracted you here, so why change it just so you can save a little time? What do you want Pacifica to be?

That is great, but Pacifica has zero money and zero ability to do any of the above things.

"In San Diego County, the City of Encinitas is also improving its stretch of the coast road, but it seeks to reduce the current four lanes to three. The towns along the improvement corridor (Encinitas, Leucadia, and Solana Beach) want to slow down traffic, improve safety, enhance the beauty of their towns through landscaping of sidewalks and medians, improve parking, and increase pedestrian traffic."

What a concept.
