When is enough enough? 

We wanted a Costco and a Home Depot to eliminate loss of tax revenue to Santa Maria and save gasoline needed for the round trip. Now we have Home Depot. Costco is under construction. Those out-of-town shopping trips are now unnecessary and the city has its source of extra tax revenue.

So why the campaign for the Marketplace, with its islands of bland false-front architecture in a massive sea of paved parking and unfriendly pedestrian environment, mandated to "protect" the unique environment of downtown?

We now we hear: "I want my Target." Must we pave even more of our paradise and pay the developer $750,000 a year for 30 years just to have a Target and an overpass? It is time to say enough is enough! Vote No ... No ... No!
