SD City Council to vote on One Paseo development

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – After postponing a scheduled Monday vote on the controversial One Paseo project, the San Diego City Council is set to vote Thursday on the fate of the Carmel Valley development.

The Council will decide whether to put the development on the ballot, or cancel the project altogether.

A delay in the vote was caused after the developer, Kilroy Realty, reportedly entered negotiations with an Orange County firm that had funded a referendum against One Paseo.

According to opponents of the project, an already crowded area would be subjected to even more traffic congestion. Supporters of One Paseo, including Kilroy Realty, have stated that a sophisticated traffic signal system and shuttle service would solve the traffic issues.

The project would call for 10 buildings on nearly 1.5 million square feet, and would include a movie theater, office buildings, and more than 600 housing units. Despite its opposition, the project already survived two Council votes by margins of 7-2 and 6-1, respectively.
