San Diego Planning Commission recommends ‘considerations’ to make One Paseo project in Carmel Valley acceptable

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.

Planning Commission’s Carmel Valley One Paseo vote delayed

After nearly five hours of public testimony on One Paseo, the San Diego Planning Commission voted on Oct. 2 to continue the item for commission discussion and deliberation to its Thursday, Oct. 16, meeting. The meeting will begin at 9 a.m. and no further public testimony will be taken — the board will aim to make a recommendation to send to San Diego City Council for the final decision.

A recommendation must have the votes of four of the seven planning commissioners, although two commissioners have recused themselves due to financial interests in the project.
