Planning Commission votes 5-0 in support of 24 homes along College Avenue

Despite a strong showing from Del Cerro residents, and solid testimony from a number of residents, on Thursday, September 14, the Planning Commission voted 5-0 to support the project. It is obvious the city’s interest for in-fill housing is a priority. The project meets the city’s requirements, and that is what the commissioners relied upon to justify their vote. To the commissioners, 24 homes is an insignificant impact on our community.

Thank you to everyone who took the time to attend the meeting and state their position in opposition before the Planning Commission.

The next, and final step, is the project will go before City Council. The date for City Council action has not been set. Now that it will be a docketed item for the City Council, you may contact the members of the City Council to state your position and encourage the councilmembers to vote against the project.

Thank you,
Jay Wilson, Secretary
Del Cerro Action Council

ColRich Hearing at City of San Diego Planning Commission –

Good afternoon Del Cerro:

I was just informed the Planning Commission has docketed the ColRich project (24 homes south of the Chevron Station on College Avenue) for next Thursday, September 14.

The agenda for the planning commission meeting is not posted at this time (Thursday, September 7, 12:55 pm. Meetings being at 9:00 a.m. in the City Council Chambers – 12th floor of City Hall at 202 C Street. I will keep checking the Planning Commission website for the posting of the agenda.
Here is a Link to the Planning Commission Agenda page

I am following up with Mark Rawlins, the Chair of the Del Cerro Action Council regarding a presentation against the project. We can certainly use a show of support for the opposition of the project at the Planning Commission. The trolley is the best option as it stops in front of the City Administration Building. You never know how long items before the ColRich item will take.

DCAC Secretary
