8. 7:50 South Central Waterfront
City Council met Oct. 13, big issues include parkland and affordable housing. Endeavor proposes affordable housing at 422 W. Riverside, 70 units at 80% MFI instead of 55 at SCW; 5% of units rather than 4% but less than 10% in PUD ordinance passed on first reading, or 20% target in Waterfront Vision Plan – studio $1,368, 2-bedroom $1,952, family four making $78,000 per year. Chito Vela, Pio Renteria, Mayor Steve Adler likely on board; Kathie Tovo, Alison Alter, Leslie Pool likely opposed; and is proposed parkland in the Critical Water Quality Zone, and hence “unbuildable”?
Presenter: Sherri Ancipink, SCW Representative (10 min)
