The City Council agenda item, Centennial Transit Village, has been continued for another 2 weeks Council voted last evening. It will once again come before the public on March 12th. The applicant is seeking additional financial backing to allow the development to be completed in one phase rather than the two phases. Councilman Gupta expressed his excitement to hear this might be completed in one phase. Councilman Addiego said he was looking forward to this project coming to fruition while Councilman Garbarino said he had a few more questions to resolve. Councilwoman Normandy stated last year at this time she was in the audience and that the 2 week extension was reasonable to see all facts completed at once.
Additional comments were made about senior housing since this project at 180 El Camino Real will be home to approximately 284 apartment units. Steve Mattas, our interim city manager and attorney with our contracted law firm, replied to Mayor Matsumoto’s question about the Rotarians plan to build senior housing. He offered that the 323 Miller Avenue location might be part of that conversation and should be dealt with separately.
So it appears council will follow the approval of the Planning Commission and the recommendation of from the Staff report and approve this project at the next council meeting set for March 12th at 7pm.
