Updates regarding:

  • 406-428 Alpine – Applicant proposes changing zoning from GO-CO-NP to GO-MU-CO-NP, which will allow for housing density up to 36 units/acre. The site includes the VFW Hall and a greenfield at the headwaters of Blunn Creek. [VOTE POSSIBLE]
  • 311-335 South Congress – Applicant proposes 400’ tall PUD with 350 dwelling units.

Presenter: Sarah Campbell, SRCC Planning and Zoning Chair (10 min)

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)
