9.  8:05 South Central Waterfront

Discuss and vote on SRCC’s updated position concerning 305 S. Congress (the “Statesman PUD”).

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. To review the applicant’s marketing materials:
