A group of concerned neighbors stops to check out the planned site for Chabad.Photo by: Danielle VinlandLa Jolla, CA - A proposal by conservative Jewish group La Chabad was roundly rejected by a second planning group committee.

The proposal calls for demolishing an existing single-family home at 2466 Hidden Valley road and replacing it with a two-story, 11,666-square-foot structure to include a synagogue, a rabbi’s residence, a social hall with attendant kitchen and a small preschool.


The La Jolla Shores Planned District Ordinance Permit Review Committee had voted 5-0 against the project Sept. 23. Now the La Jolla Traffic and Transportation Board, comprised of members from five local planning organizations, voted 6-0-2 to deny Chabad’s proposal.

Community planners cited bulk and scale, incompatibility with the surrounding neighborhood, possible impacts to the already congested “Throat” intersection and concerns over whether applicants are providing enough parking as reasons for their disapproval of the project.

Calling Chabad a "conservative Jewish group " is an odd choice of words for many reasons.

Again, this sounds like a zoning issue. There's a Young Israel in the 'burbs that had to build a smaller building than what they knew they needed because of the zoning for parking. If they want to expand, they must have more parking - even
though the parking lot is closed on Shabbat & Yom Tov.

But that's the law, even if it were a church or mosque.
