The Rossmoor Park Condos were originally part of the Rossmoor Center when it was annexed by Seal Beach .Seal Beach Planning Dept years ago did not plan to well as there is not enough parking for the owners of the condos . Also when they upgraded to the shops at rossmoopr they changed the footprint and moved the shops less then 30 feet from the back of the condos . For 3-4 years they were illegally making deliveries to the clothing stores in the 20 foot fire lane. The diesel trucks would leave their motors running at all hours causing air and noise pollution. Finally after 2 years of complaining they put up a gate. Also in the plans that were approved by Seal Beach large delivery trucks were to only enter by the main entrance which is 4 lanes ,they were not to use Roosmoor Center Way and they were not to deliver before 7:00 in the morning. That has never been enforced . These huge trucks are double parked often blocking the fire lane and leaving their motors running, right on the doorstep of the condos. Diesel fuel is 3 times as deadly in causing cancer.Diesel exhaust contaminants include substances listed as human carcinogens by the International Agency for Research on Cancer of the U.N.'s World Health Organization.I think maybe Seal Beach should do a study on health issues developing to condo owners.to my understanding Environment Quality Control Board voted 4-1 to not send a recommendation to the Seal Beach Planning Commission. Also, to my understanding the 1 vote that was for the recommendation is related to the CFO of LA Fitness

Thank you to the author for writing the article. There are a couple of points that I believe were missed; One of the "approval" votes had a serious conflict of interest(morally if not necessarily legally) and should have recused himself since his daughter is the CFO of 24 hour fitness. Also the additional "west bound lanes"would dump much more early morning and late night traffic onto Montecito Road, an already overly busy and noisy, Rossmoor residential street. Rossmoor doesn't want the additional traffic. Especially at 5:00 AM and 11:PM. We can't continue to dump the negative impacts of our developments on neighboring communities while ignoring their objections simply because they are not in our city/district/community. This reminds me of Cypress trying to put a distribution center by the race track while dumping the traffic on Los Alamitos. The shops does have a right to develop their property, but not to unduly harm their Rossmoor neighbors. Development of this area needs to be done in cooperation with the Rossmoor community, not at their expense. The Shops at Rossmoor doesn't seem to be able to rent the old Marie Calendars site. Why not put 24 hour fitness there and everyone is happy?

Rossmoor Park Condo owners are trespassing when they park in the shopping center PRIVATE PROPERTY parking lot. The residents have NO LEGAL RIGHT to park there. ANY accomodation or consideration of their illegal claim to parking, or its delay or stopping of the project, results in PROPERTY TAKING and a denial of the centers property rights by the city. I feel the parking pain of the condo residents, parking is hard all over Seal Beach. But they have no more right or say in this than they do to randomly park in someone's private residential driveway in Rossmoor. Traffic and any legitimate issues have been mitigated. The city needs to approve the project BY RIGHT, and move on. Or I imagine face a huge lawsuit from the center if illegally denied.

I would like to thank Commissioner Campbell and Commissioner Machen for their input and for actually listening to the comments from the community. They asked intelligent questions and truly expressed interest in at least studying the project further.
Thank you again,
Susan Taylor

I agree completely, Melissa. It's very unfortunate that more of the Seal Beach residents who have expressed opposition, or at least more time to study the impact,did not show up. The Seal Beach city government in this case isn't even considering the input of its own residents. I knew that comments from Rossmoor would have limited impact because we aren't voters. We are, however, huge contributors to the retail income enjoyed by the City coffers. No more of my money, that's for sure.
Most residents in Rossmoor who are in favor of this don't live near the center.They get to leave and YOU have to put up with the traffic, noise, and the SIX THOUSAND members projected for this project. I wish your city would stop just paying attention to Main Street and listen to the rest of us who have to live with their decisions.

There were much more than a few Seal Beach residents there. Hundreds live in the condos along Montecito where they want to shoehorn in this monstrosity. Guess what...they are SEAL BEACH residents...not Rossmoor and I saw dozens of my neighbors there. The planning commission didn't even think about the hundreds of families who will be affected and are 100% in opposition

Am I the only one who objects to Aunt Gertie's big cigar? Maybe she could try carrying a lollipop from one of the sweet shops on Main St.

One of the best restaurants in Seal and Tim was a joy and very supportive of every city event and organization. He and his great food will be missed. Sadly we did not support him enough.

What was the reason? They like ugly?

It's difficult to believe anyone thought they could get away with the flagrant destruction of city property and a beloved site for the enjoyment of a bit of nature and quiet. What is perhaps more difficult to understand is the level of selfishness and disregard for the people who use the park.
I would hope action is taken to reclaim the loss.
