In 2018, the issue of putting an LA Fitness behind the Sprouts grocery store was brought before the council. Due to the impact on the condominiums on Montecito, I voted along with 2 other council members to NOT allow this property to get built. The traffic impacts at the mall would negatively impact the already heavy traffic from the In-N-Out burger and current stores. Also, this property would open at 4:30a.m. and close at 11:00p.m. and would be within 100 feet of a large amount of residences. When I make a decision, I try to put myself in the shoes of someone that would live near the potential project.
I am a big proponent of businesses and have started 2 companies myself, however I can’t support something that would negatively impact the local community.
