‘One Paseo’ to be sent back to City Council and potentially to voters
SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – The San Diego County Registrar announced those opposed to the One Paseo development had enough signatures to send it back to City Council.
Those opposed to the project gathered more than 60,000 signatures, going way over the required 34,000-plus needed to qualify.
Now, the San Diego City Council must decide if they want to reverse approval for the project or put it up for a public vote.
The Initial City Council votes on One Paseo were successful, passing with a 7-2 and 6-1 vote, respectively.
The One Paseo proposal, estimated at $750 million, would include shops, offices, a theater, and more than 600 housing units. The location just south of Del Mar Heights Road, between El Camino Real and High Bluff Drive, would take up approximately 1.5 million square feet of space.
Kilroy Realty issued the following statement regarding the Notice of Sufficiency of signatures to force One Paseo’s 7-2 City Council approval to a referendum:
“Kilroy worked constructively with Carmel Valley community members for nearly seven years to refine One Paseo, ultimately earning the support of a bipartisan super-majority of the City Council. We’re incredibly disappointed the project now faces further delay resulting from a campaign of misinformation paid for by an Orange County-based corporation bent on smothering competition. At the moment, we’re still evaluating the best route to deliver the region’s most environmentally sustainable project and the many economic and community benefits One Paseo offers San Diegans.”
Supporters of the plan tout it as the future of San Diego development, while opponents claim it will add more traffic congestion to an already busy area.
