This Thursday, May 26th, the San Diego Planning Commission will hear an appeal of the City’s decision to approve a controversial project slated for the 2200 block of Froude Street in Ocean Beach.
The project – two multistory residences – has outraged neighbors enough that they have supported the effort to appeal the decision by the City’s Development Services to okay it. The project includes:
“the demolition of an existing single-family structure and the construction of two new 1, 814 square-foot homes each over a 1,073 square-foot basement/two car garage on two legal lots.”
This is at 2257 Froude Street between Voltaire and Greene.
The Planning Commission begins their regular hearing at 9 am in the City Council Chambers on the 12th floor at City Hall, 202 West “C” Street. The Froude project appeal is the first substantive item on the Commission’s agenda, after agenda and minutes approvals, staff reports. Here’s the agenda for May 26. And City Development staff have recommended denial of the appeal.
Here’s why there’s controversy – besides the bulk, style, etc of the project itself – :
