Here is the North County Times article about last nights Streetscape discussion at the Planning Comission:ENCINITAS: Consultants explain streetscape alternatives
Two of the alternatives call for as many as five roundabouts to be installed along the highway at El Portal, Jupiter, Grandview, Sea Bluff and La Costa Avenue.
The idea of building roundabouts didn't go over well with some community members, however. Building them to calm traffic would be foolish, said Rick and Kathy Smith, who own Leucadia Glass on Coast Highway.
The Smiths are being harshly criticized for being anti-roundabout but what the newspaper fails to mention is that the Smiths will lose their building to eminent domain to make room for the roundabout. This is because nobody in this town has the savvy to convince the NCTD to surrender 9 feet of crappy wasteland dirt for the roundabout thus leaving a longtime small business and outstanding member of the community to lose everything. No good deed goes unpunished eh?
