9. 8:05 South Central Waterfront
Discuss and vote on SRCC’s updated position concerning 305 S. Congress (the “Statesman PUD”).
SRCC currently opposes the project. Without a regulating plan and adequate commitments for private financing, SRCC does not recommend public funding for the Statesman PUD. A previous, and two subsequent, PUD applicants did not require public funding to meet existing codes.
From what opposing parties have uncovered, it seems the Statesman PUD applicant intends to use the South Central Waterfront Vision Framework Plan to obtain additional entitlements, without providing required and envisioned community benefits. For instance, the proposed parkland seems inadequate, vehicular and pedestrian access from Congress Avenue may be limited and eliminated in certain areas, and the affordable housing component does not meet standard code requirements.
