Does The Miramar Really Need To Expand?

Letter To The Editor

Dear Editor,

My name is Kay Ward, and I'm a 34-year Santa Monica resident.

Does the Miramar really need to expand its square footage to over 500,000 square feet to make a profit or achieve its goals as a business?

To put that into context for everyone, that's about the size of the Santa Monica Place, on a much smaller land parcel.

We haven't seen a plan that proposes a lower density that's in keeping with the LUCE and the current version of the Downtown Specific Plan--without the condos, for example.

The EIR should include a study of an alternative site plan with lower density, particularly without the 120 condos.

Thank you.

Kay Ward
