One Paseo community meeting to be held in Carmel Valley

By Karen Billing

The Carmel Valley Community Planning Board will hold a special meeting to address the proposed One Paseo mixed-use development on Thursday, Aug. 28. The meeting will be at 7 p.m. at Canyon Crest Academy.

According to planning board chair Frisco White, the meeting will be a chance for the board to hear input from the community. The board will then make a recommendation on the project at a special meeting at 7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 11, also at Canyon Crest Academy.

As the planning board is an advisory board, its position on One Paseo will be forwarded to San Diego City Council, which will have the final say.

One Paseo is planned for the vacant corner on El Camino Real and Del Mar Heights Road. One Paseo’s plans for the project are 1.4 million square feet, more than the 500,000 square feet of office space that is entitled.

Plans include 246,500 square feet of retail, 484,000 square feet of office space, as well as 608 residential units and a “Main Street” feature. The developers, Kilroy Realty, have also promised more than $5 million in community benefits, such as an adapted control system for the traffic lights, landscaped medians and walkways, public plazas and spaces, protected bikeways, trail connections and more.

Confirmed One Paseo tenants include Pinstripes, a bistro restaurant with a bowling and bocce ball facility; and restaurants True Food Kitchen, North Italia Restaurant and Puesto Mexican Street Food.

Opponents have expressed concerns about the project’s size and potential traffic increases, and say that the project does not match the community character.

The project’s Draft Environmental Impact Report will be discussed at the meeting. The report includes the city’s request for a study of a project alternative that ranges from 600,000 to 800,000 square feet.

During public comment at the board’s July 24 meeting, Carmel Valley resident Ken Farinsky encouraged board members to get out before the August meeting and talk to as many of their constituents as possible about how they view the project.

Chair White reminded the members that when speaking to the public, they should be  clear that the board has taken no official position yet on the project.
