Just as carefully as the Carmel Valley Community Planning Board made sure it used the word “reject” in its recommendation for One Paseo, the San Diego Planning Commission didn’t use the words “deny” or “approve” when forwarding the project on to the San Diego City Council. On Oct. 16, the commission voted unanimously that they “all agree that it’s a good project in concept but are unable to recommend to city council that they accept it as is and offer the following considerations to make it acceptable.” The list of considerations includes 11 issues they have problems with, including lowering building height (requesting an attempt to get to six stories rather than nine), bulk and scale, storm water and water recapture, transit and parking.
