Public comment has just begun at 9 pm. Long meeting!
Observation: the new La Costa Ave resort people have been silent on the streetscape this entire process and now they show up to complain about it.
Fred Caldwell = my hero
Real estate agent relocation wisecrack does not go over well. ouch.
Meeting extended until 11 pm. Poor Jim Bond and poor me. I want to go to bed.
Red shirt lady asking about cost and drainage. Valid issues.
I think I'm the only L101 Mainstreet Assoc board member not at the meeting. oops.
Paula K makes the case for more trees. Remember how brutal hot the last Art Walk was? We need more tree shade!
Tom Frank throws down some traffic knowledge.
The nice thing about watching the meeting on tv at home is that I'm having snacks.
10:15 pm 30 speakers slated to speak. Gosh!
"Gaggle of bicyclist"
Walter, "Bring Leucadia up to the same standards of the rest of Encinitas."
I'm glad at least one teenager showed up and spoke tonight. We weren't even a city when I was in high school.
I'm like, old and stuff.
Charley Marvin says this is Leucadia's one shot for infrastructure improvements and he is right. If this streetscape opportunity slips away our town is going straight into blighty town over the next decade.
I don't know what it is but ECC head Marshall Weinrab rubs me the wrong way.
FYI, the city cam makes red shirts look fuschia.
Meeting extended to 11:30!!!
Will there be a vote tonight? This is gripping drama.
Peder Norby at the podium now.
Didn't catch the name of the trippy dude but I like your style man.
Didn't Sheila Cameron have the power to lower the speed limit to 35 mph at one time?
Good idea from Sheila, the city should buy one of the empty 101 lots and put in a public parking lot.
Give the money back to the taxpayer and leave the streets alone. They're fine. I'm broke.
Mustache man sez, if you plant trees you better maintain them because they grow and block views.
"The merchants are going to profit from corridor improvements without giving anything back."DISAGREE
"I love these midnight therapy sessions."That is pretty funny.
It's conspiracy time.
Gary Murphy makes a passionate plea for temporary stop signs until the streetscape is completed. Gives history of "Blood Alley".
Speakers finished up. Now follow up comments. It's approaching midnight.
Is that Doug Curlee from KUSI news in the background?
My head hurts.
Geeze.... please vote so I can go to Bed!
Jerome is supporting some form of 4a. Yeah.
Teresa is 4a with a look at contents of phase 1
Barth supporting 4 A. Bond supporting 4A if northbound remains 2 lanes.
Jim likes spending City dollars maintaining a travel lane thats not needed and will not support 4 A with one lane north.
You make a fine reporter J.P. I have just read all of your posts and feel like I was there or at least at my television. Unfortunately, I was working. Thanks for the play by play description of this gripping event.
Now my head and eyes hurt.
Oh god... please quite talking.
ah geez. Meeting over. I kinda dozed off there. What happened?
4a passes with staff to come back with refinement and scope suggestions. Not sure what that means. how did Jim vote?
Jim voted against 4A.
Jim Bonds just couldn't keep up with the presentation and the benefits and issues being discussed.Jim Bond is a dinisour with a mind that is slipping. Jim,-you have had a really long run, now step down and let sommone capible lead our City. Please.
I enjoyed his Grandpa Simpson story about picking flowers on the 101 as a young marine. I like Jim Bond. His concerns are valid.
About as valid as in 2012 the world will end!Jim has lost it. Step down Jim for your wife's sake.
