One Paseo’s fate wasn’t on the line Thursday night. But the terms of the debate over its future might have been.
The local planning group rejected the proposed $650 million Carmel Valley project, and its 1.4 million square feet of offices, shops, restaurants and 600 condos spread across 23 acres in the heart of a planned suburban community in northern San Diego.
But that vote’s just a recommendation to the City Council. The Council can still vote however it wants. It’s expected to do so as early as December. The project will also go to the citywide Planning Commission for another recommendation before then.
In the meantime, the planning group might have taken advantage of an opportunity to shape the debate.
