We are neighbors who have come together to postpone the development of a 37,000 square foot building (LA Fitness) in the Shops at Rossmoor behind Sprouts.
This giant building will have vast impacts on thousands of residents, including emergency services, traffic, environmental, noise, and most importantly SAFETY issues for thousands of residents, including children and the elderly who use these roads.
We are asking for contributions from our neighbors in Seal Beach, Los Alamitos, Rossmoor, and beyond to fund legal representation so we may stop their second attempt at re-filing a “new” application for the LA Fitness project. We believed that we had stopped the project in July. However, our previous efforts and attempts resulted in the project moving forward due to their sneaky tactics of filing under a new application.
The Coalition will continue to meet and work the issues. We will inform the public of the process…. via social media, news outlets, and local organizations who serve the citizens. ANY contribution amount will be appreciated!
We need funds immediately to first address the parking situation that will affect all North Seal Beach and Rossmoor residents. Then we will need additional funds to obtain legal counsel to ensure the safety of all residents and that the property values of Seal Beach, Rossmoor, and Los Alamitos don’t lessen due to the negative impact of the LA Fitness project. Your contribution will be protecting numerous neighbors against the addition of thousands of cars going through our neighborhood and adding more congestion on the major boulevards.
Your contribution will also help put a halt on a building that will be noisy and open 20 hours a day. Most importantly, emergency responders will be able to get to people in need quickly, and our residents will be able to walk to school, sports practice, scouts, church, the library and parks SAFELY.
Thank you, in advance, for your help and please spread the word!

The Coalition Against LA Fitness (CALAF) is a non-profit focused on preventing the LA Fitness project from being built in the parking lot behind Sprouts in the Shops at Rossmoor shopping center in Seal Beach. Our coalition is made up of residents of Seal Beach, Rossmoor, and Los Alamitos along with concerned citizens from neighboring communities. Please join us
We oppose the project because of its negative impacts on our quality of life. Specifically, the project will adversely affect our environment with:
- Noise and light pollution
- Increased traffic and congestion
- Impacts on residential parking
And most of all we are concerned with the safety of pedestrians and our family members who frequent the area and need to cross the already busy streets surrounding the Shops At Rossmoor.
We need funds to mount and maintain this battle. Funds to preserve our neighborhood and our quality of life. Funds to retain attorneys and file the necessary paperwork. Funds to ideally stop the project. And if not stop it entirely, at least expose and mitigate the many traffic, safety, parking, and environmental impacts on our neighborhood. Impacts that will continue for years into the future and adversely affect our property values.
Please consider contributing to our cause here on Go Fund Me . It’s about preserving our quality of life.
