Just doesn’t care?
The following quote tells the story of the eight-year battle the community lost in their quest to have a community park (“Lights planned for field at Hall property park,” July 2, 2010).
“The field lights will directly neighbor Vons shopping center and Interstate 5. ‘If you can’t have lights by the shopping center and freeway, where can you have them?’ Dalager asked.”
The fact is that the area that borders Vons, to the north, is the smallest and only area not directly impacting residents. To the west, east and south are hundreds of residential homes on narrow streets that will lose ocean views, sunset views, their quality of life, their view of stars, their community character, their night time safety and will have decreased property values.
It is obvious that either our mayor does not know this or he just does not care.
