Bvavsvavev,

I'm a dreamer. Or nostalgic. I see Third Avenue as it might be, and as it once was. The people I spoke with about this development weren't against any development, it had more to do with the mass and density of this particular proposal.

Development aside, if Third Avenue could just get one great anchor store. I believe the city council can give various kinds of incentives. There's that word believe again. I believe there is room in this city for two Trader Joe's. If one opened on Third, people would come. Although, meters are a deterrent...something could be done.

How about having the first LL Bean outlet on the West Coast where the old Leader Department store was across from the Vogue as an anchor? It would be in keeping with the sports and outdoor oriented life style of San Diego county. Or demolish the complex that houses UEI and build a one story complex whose buildings could be viewed from the street without having to wander around looking for a business. The Vogue Theater could be remodeled for digital and become a show place for film festivals, film revivals, and as venue for showcasing student films from SDSU's film school and the film schools in Tijuana.

cvlancer, Ok I vote for you for City council. Great ideas. Do you know, not a week goes by that someone doesn't mention a dream for the Vogue theater. It's like this very old person with a billion stories to tell. It is a historic landmark, but I understand it's in serious disrepair.

A mixed venue location...cross border fusion is a great idea...films, battle of the garage bands...young people in Chula Vista don't have enough places to go...

The west side of Chula Vista has many problems with roads and drainage just to name a couple. Deferring developers' impact fees can only aggravate the problem. Ironically, it's been reported that the city is considering asking voters to approve a bond measure to finance infrastructure projects. Deferring Developer Impact Fees for ten years(!) might look good to a developer's bottom line, but it's doubtful it will sit well with voters being asked, at the same time, to vote for more taxes.

The Metropolitan Transit System has a fantastic web site where you can plan trips and study options. It remembers where you are, so when you return to the site you save a bit of typing. Very informative.

The monthly pass system has been WAY behind the times but I guess they'll fix it (or maybe they have already). MTS is a huge bureaucracy and slow to move, but it's not really terrible.

I recommend that every citizen take a vacation right here in our town. Get a transit pass and visit all those parts of SD that you have neglected. Hop on any bus or train and see where it goes. Get off at a random location and explore. Talk with local people, eat local food, browse a local bookstore… Do this every day for a week or more. Repeat after 3 years. Cheaper than a week in Cancun and more rewarding.
