SAN DIEGO (CNS) - The City Council Tuesday will consider whether to approve a nearly 23-acre residential project on undeveloped property along Mission Gorge Road across from the Allied Gardens neighborhood.
As proposed, the project would include 27 single-family houses and 996 multi-family units, retail space and a community park. The property, bordered by the San Diego River and the Admiral Baker Golf Course, is currently used to store vehicles for nearby automobile dealers and mixing by an adjacent concrete company.
The council members will be asked to change the zoning and amend the city's general plan, certify the environmental impact report, and authorize a development permit. The project was unanimously passed by the city's Planning Commission.
The council also will be presented with a plan to add 117 charging stations for electric vehicles at 27 locations around the city, such as parks, libraries, recreations centers and streets.
The item would also extend a pilot project with ECOtality, the contractor installing the charging stations, from the end of this year to the end of 2013. The firm is working toward installing 1,000 of the stations around San Diego County.
