One Paseo-related traffic issues to be discussed at March 28 Carmel Valley planning board meeting

By Karen Billing

Traffic issues surrounding the proposed One Paseo project are on the agenda for next week’s Carmel Valley Community Planning Board meeting. The board will meet Thursday, March 28, at 6:30 p.m. at Ocean Air Elementary School (11444 Canter Heights Dr., San Diego, 92130).

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

Planning board chair Frisco White prepared a list of 25 of the board’s questions and concerns on the project’s traffic study to be addressed by Kilroy and the city of San Diego at the March 28 meeting.

The planning board has asked for explanations on how proposed synchronized traffic light solution will work; if there is enough parking during peak hours; average wait times at intersections; and how peak congestion is projected within the project.

As the traffic study assumes the completion of the Interstate 5/SR-56 interchange and the I-5 widening, the planning board also wants clarification on how the traffic will be mitigated in the time before those projects are completed, as it could be many years before the projects are finished.

The planning board has made a request to see a side-by-side comparison of the proposed project verses the currently adopted land use for the site (550,000 square feet of office space), as well as existing conditions.

“We need to understand how this project changes the functionality and performance of the roadway network as compared to making no changes to the existing conditions today,” the board’s letter states. “We need to understand how our community may change.”

Prior to the meeting, elections for nine Carmel Valley planning board seats will be held at the Carmel Valley Library from 5-5:30 p.m.

Seats up for election include Jonathan Tedesco for the Pacific Highlands Ranch district 12 seat; Brian Brady of Kilroy Realty for the business seat; Rick Newman for the Neighborhood 1 seat; Nancy Novak for the Neighborhood 3 seat; Chris Moore for the Neighborhood 6 seat; Laura Copic for the Neighborhood 10 seat; Rodney Hunt for the investor representative seat; and Allen Kashani for the developer representative seat.

Neighborhood 5 is the only one of the eight seats up for election that is contested with candidates Debbie Lokanc and Elissa Krasenbaum vying for the spot.
Voters must have identification to prove local residency.
