Shops not houses

Measure L is big news, in Pacifica. Yes or No we will probably lose either way. No one has mentioned that 355 homes equals about 710-plus cars, traffic will be a major problem.

What we need in Pacifica is a shopping mall, (Pacifica Mall or Seaside Mall,) would create jobs for Pacificans, we need to keep our citizens here in Pacifica, spending their money and taxes here at home. Mall hours would be 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Shouldn't conflict with the commuter traffic. We would save gas by not driving elsewhere to shop.

A convention center would be nice, it could be used for all kinds of activities, dances, parties, meetings, etc. Whatever happened to having a skating rink? Why do we need a Hotel? Who would what to smell our wonderful, new SEWAGE treatment plant? Get out and VOTE!
