This is an excellent argument for restraint on the part of the city council. I hope this issue doesn't slip in under the radar during the summer. It's a terrible proposal. The city can do better. It has so many development increases underway, like removing Harv's Car Wash and the Jiffy Lube and replacing with high density housing. This one is the absolute worst thing being proposed.

I will fight this proposal. Both Rose market and Peets contribute positively to the character of the city. There are much better places to build high-density housing, for example along El Camino where so many businesses are shutting down.
Come to Rose Market Monday night at 6:30 and we can fight this together!!

One of the reasons all these business are vacating El Camino at this point is that their rents are being raised astronomically. In this case, Rose Market has a long term lease which should provide them some protection. However, this development effort is an end run around honoring Rose Market's lease rate. I certainly agree, some sanity is needed in this city.
