Special Meeting of the Balboa Reservoir CAC Thursday, November 5

Last month’s meeting on housing and urban design had an ambitious agenda. The Planning Department’s development parameters for housing got some attention but due to a lot of public response, discussion of the urban design parameters had to be delayed and given its own special meeting.

The CAC will therefore meet this Thursday at 6:45 in room 140 in the Multi Use Building, 55 Phelan Ave. If you are new to the project, please arrive at 6:00 p.m. for a brief project overview so that you will be up to speed when the meeting gets underway.

Here’s the Agenda. (pdf) And here is the September 19 proposed development parameters. (pdf) Come prepared! Read the parameters before commenting!
