If you lived in an area being eyed for a major new development, a $10 million investment in your kids’ schools could soften the blow of increased traffic and congestion the project would bring.
Then again, if you lived within a short jog of the new development, and that $10 million was going to the school district next door — not yours — that might solidify your opposition.
One Paseo, and its developer, Kilroy Realty Inc., are in an unusual situation. The 23-acre project site is near the boundary between two elementary school districts, Del Mar Union School District and the Solana Beach School District. It’s also in the San Dieguito Union High School District.
If the City Council approves the project, which requires an amendment to Carmel Valley’s existing community plan written in 1975, Kilroy will pay roughly $10 million total to the Solana Beach and San Dieguito school districts, where kids from the 600 new housing units will attend.
