This is made up of 50% one bedroom, 35% studio and 15% two bedrooms. 228 structured stalls (which means parking spots) 180 below level and 58 at grade level. 17 additional on street parking spaces due to allowing parking on the east side of Jaeger. 9,462 sf of retail space – increased from 8,000 sf.

CSSAC ZONING COMMITTEE HAS TABLED 280 EAST WHITTIER STREET

(I have just been updated from Zoning Chairperson of CSSAC and I want to be transparent with the community.)

For the 280 Project, I will be calling a Special Meeting to discuss and see if the applicant has a better solution to the proposal at hand, they came with Different Drawings at your Civic Meeting, and have shown a desire to work more of a compromise on the project. Addendum B of the By Laws of the Commission gives me that option in Section 5, with 7 day notice, we are trying to schedule this for October 31, I am waiting on Confirmation from the applicant’s counsel. And Beth will provide the proper notice at that time per the City Charter and we will push it over via social media platforms.
After consulting with City Staff, and Jim and Erin, at that time, the Zoning Committee along with all Commissioners, and a representative from Schumacher, and City Staff will meet and try to come to a balanced fair solution for all parties. The meeting will be open for public viewing, but chat will be shut off and there will be no public comments taken for this meeting. I will also have Tony from the City online to explain to the Commissioners and Committee folks what should and should not be considered, he will also review City Staff Report and by that time the traffic and parking study should be ready for review and to get feedback from City staff on that matter which is one of the two big issues on the project. 
As to the question if this will go back to the Civic, under same section, Number 6 States that the applicant shall not appear before the Civic more than once, and they have done that 3 times, at which at that time you took an Electronic Vote for the Disapproval, as Reported by you, so at this time, that part of the process has been recorded and noted, and we are to the Commission Process of the application in which will trying to resolve the matter fairly and balanced for ALL Parties.
