Carmel Valley planning board to discuss One Paseo project Feb. 27

By Karen Billing

The Carmel Valley Community Planning Board will discuss the One Paseo mixed-use project at its meeting on Wednesday, Feb. 27. The meeting will be held at 7 p.m. at Canyon Crest Academy (5951 Village Center Loop Road, San Diego, CA 92130).

The board will not make a final recommendation at this time, but will review and discuss several issues, especially issues pertaining to traffic. Planning board chair Frisco White said it will probably be several months before the board makes a final recommendation on the One Paseo project.

After the planning board’s advisory decision is made, the project will move to the city’s planning commission and city council level.

One Paseo is planned for the corner of Del Mar Heights Road and El Camino Real. The site is entitled to 510,000 square feet and Kilroy is seeking a community plan amendment to build its planned 1.4 million square feet of center. Kilroy aims for One Paseo to provide a “Main Street” for Carmel Valley with 246,500 square feet of retail, 484,000 square feet of office space and 608 residential units.

Kilroy said 20 percent of the 23-acre site will be open space or plaza areas.

Trader Joe’s has already signed on as a tenant as well as Pinstipes, a family entertainment venue with a bistro, bowling, bocce ball.

The planning board’s last meeting discussing One Paseo in January drew a huge crowd, a mix of people wearing “I support One Paseo” stickers and the opposition’s “Save Carmel Valley” stickers.

Those opposed to the project expressed concerns that One Paseo as proposed is three times what the land was entitled for, too dense for the community, out of character for Carmel Valley and would generate too much traffic, creating a “mess” on the roads.

Supporters expressed excitement for Trader Joe’s and the center’s unique design, appreciation for Kilroy’s pledge of $6 million to improve traffic with signal synchronization and argued One Paseo would create character for Carmel Valley, giving it “a heart.”
