The size and scope of this proposed project is sure to cause a dramatic increase in traffic for Niles and Alvarado-Niles Blvds. The Thai Buddhist Temple located at Niles Blvd. and Rock Ave. is prime example of excess traffic and parked vehicles. Two or three times a month, when there is a special event at the temple, parked vehicles overflow out to Niles Blvd. and completely fills the 7-11 parking lot across the street and wraps around the corner onto our street, Plumeria Way. That Thai temple is a much smaller one than the Purple Lotus Temple! The city planner that approved and allowed the Thai Buddhist Temple to be built ithout requiring that they provided adequate off-street parking sould be drawn and quartered! My concern is that the same mistake culd occur with the Purple Lotus Temple project.
