an Diego City Council members approved the three-story mixed-use (aka Whitney) project in La Jolla Shores Oct. 5, despite objections by some residents and community leaders. La Jollans Bob and Kim Whitney plan to demolish a pair of single-story buildings in the 2200 block of Avenida La Playa and construct a three-story building — with 1,800 square feet of commercial retail on the ground level and two condo units above, one of which will be their home. Opponents of the project called it a dangerous precedent that would damage the character of the upscale enclave and make it less appealing as a restaurant and shopping area. The most vocal opposition came from Myrna Naegle, who lives adjacent to the property, and who argued that its proposed 65-foot-long, 30-foothigh wall next to her residence would block light and ventilation. City staff concluded that the separation between the buildings would allow for adequate light and airflow, and disagreed with other criticisms of the project. The council voted 6-2 in favor of certifying the EIR for the project, which allows it to move forward. Council members Sherri Lightner, whose district includes La Jolla Shores, and David Alvarez voted against it. Marti Emerald was absent. Lightner said the developer hasn’t been
responsive enough to community complaints about the project, particularly its bulk and scale. She said it looks nearly identical to when it was first proposed five years ago. The remaining council members made few comments, with Scott Sherman motioning to approve the project after saying he couldn’t find a reason to oppose it. Bob Whitney said the council made the right move, adding it could stifle development in the city to require so much effort for similar projects, and noting his family has spent more than $250,000 on city permits and fees since first proposing the project in 2010. — U-T and Light reports

E-cigarette vendors work the Internet A study by UC San Diego School of Medicine researchers published in the journal Drug and Alcohol Dependence points to aggressive online marketing tactics that make purchasing e-cigarettes easy for all ages. “We found e-cigarette vendors were highly engaged in promoting the culture of ‘vaping’ online, including posting images to Instagram, a social media site used by 52 percent of teens,” said Tim K. Mackey, Ph.D., UCSD School of Medicine assistant professor of anesthesiology and global public health and first author of the study. “Despite the fact that 47 states prohibit the sale of e-cigarettes to minors, the results highlight the potential of the Internet to encourage e-cigarette initiation and underage purchasing. This is particularly concerning given that the FDA does not have specific proposed regulations for online e-cigarette sales.” A National Youth Tobacco Survey shows e-cigarette use tripled among middle and high school students from 2013 to 2014.
