One Paseo FEIR now available online!

The One Paseo FEIR is now available online! Just visit the One Paseo FEIR Page (sorry, it's on the WhatPriceMainStreet? site, the only place it's available.) Note that some of the files are HUGE, and that I'm working on splitting them up into smaller parts. For now, you'll have to download some big files to read Kilroy's information.

For what it's worth, the One Paseo Findings - Statement of Overriding Considerations document is the overview document, and an attempt by the City to justify placing the project in Carmel Valley, even with all of the impacts. Read that document to see what they're thinking.

CV Planning Board's Latest One Paseo Comments

I got a copy of the latest comments from the CV Planning Board on the One Paseo project, comments from December related to the Recirculated DEIR. In my opinion, the Planning Board's comments seem to question the very foundations of Kilroy's arguments! Some quotes from the letter: "There are many successful mixed-use projects that are much smaller... than One Paseo", "the traffic congestion associated with this proposal... would make [Carmel Valley]... less functional, less desirable, and less easily accessible", and finally, "...One Paseo is not intended as a heart for Carmel Valley but, rather, as a regional retail draw similar to The Forum in Carlsbad." Give it a read and see what you think.

CV Library Free Concert, July 9, 2014

July's free family music program sponsored by the Friends of the Carmel Valley Library will be presented on Wednesday, July 9 at 7:00 p.m. in the library's community room.

The program will last 45 minutes. The Library is located at 3919 Townsgate Drive in Carmel Valley. For further information, see the CV Library Music Page, call (858) 552-1668 or see the Friends of the Carmel Valley Library website at www.carmelvalleylibrary.org.

CV Planning Board One Paseo Final Hearing?

The CV Planning Board announced that it will hold a hearing on the final One Paseo Environmental Report on Thursday, July 24, 2014 (possibly at the CCA Auditorium.) UPDATE 7/14/2014: Canceled. The environmental report is not yet ready, so this meeting will be rescheduled based on the completion of the document. This meeting is meant to allow the public to comment on Kilroy's latest plans for One Paseo before the Planning Board makes its final decision (possibly on July 31.) The only problem? The Environmental Report isn't available yet! That means you can't actually see the document, and there's barely 2 weeks left to review a multi-thousand page document before the board hears the issue! For additional information on the planning board and its subcommittees, see the CV Planning Board Page on this site.
