Dining space on street parking should be stopped
I continue to be concerned about the use of La Jolla public parking spaces for the
“Spaces as Places” initiative (“‘Spaces as Places’ gets December hearing at Coastal Commission,” News Nuggets, Dec. 1, La Jolla Light).
The wholesale hogging of spaces, regardless of fees paid, advantage restaurants that push out into public parking spaces and disadvantage smaller Village businesses whose patrons cannot access those businesses because of lack of parking. This is totally unfair.
Yes, fees are paid by these restaurants, but that is beside the point. The city apparently welcomes the fees to support other projects that have little or nothing to do with our Village.
In addition to the unfair usage of public parking spaces, the “parklets” are unattractive. I was struck by the photo in the Dec. 1 La Jolla News Nuggets. How similar is the Puesto enclosure to Western cattle pens at roundup? Is this how we want La Jolla to look?
It is hard to believe that La Jollans are not in an uproar about this program relative to street parking encroachment. I urge our residents and friends to write to the Coastal Commission and urge that the street parking aspect of Spaces as Places be struck down.
