What is going on in our city of Huntington Beach is a bigger issue than building a 27,000-square-foot multipurpose gym in a quiet residential neighborhood (“Gym doesn’t warrant protest,” Mailbag, July 2). It is a bigger issue than a gym that will hold more than 1,400 people. It is a bigger issue than holding Friday and Saturday night football games with more than 900 spectators 150 feet from someone’s home. It is a bigger issue than hundreds of cars flooding a quiet neighborhood with traffic, noise, lights, air pollution and filling every neighborhood parking space a quarter-mile away.

The female-friendly gym, which was started in the Bible Belt town of Waco, Texas, has expanded exponentially from 44 international locations in 1996 to more than 5,000 today. There is one Curves gym for every four McDonald's in America. In Orange County, the number will have skyrocketed from 18 sites in October to 50 by the end of the month.

The Planning Commission will review the use of Brethren Christian Junior and Senior High School’s gymnasium and field Tuesday after numerous complaints from residents and two notifications from the city. Brethren Christian’s conditional use permit will be scrutinized by the commission and could face further review, be put on a public hearing for modifications or be revoked. The conditional use permit was approved by the City Council in May and allows the private school to build a 27,000-square-foot, 31-foot-tall gymnasium, use it for school and community uses and employ the existing soccer field as a football field with bleacher seating and four portable lights.

Regarding “H.B. to oversee Sunset,” July 9: My wife and I have been property owners in Sunset Beach since 1974. We raised our two sons there in the small community atmosphere. We moved to Old Town Huntington Beach about 14 years ago, and now a very nice, young couple is renting our Sunset Beach cottage and plan to start their new family in the same small community atmosphere. After we moved to Huntington Beach, the city hired a contractor to re-tar the street and, in the process, the contractor destroyed the curb, wiping out the curb in some spots and chipping it in others.
