The San Carlos Planning Commission will hold a Public Hearing on Oct. 1, 2012 at 7:00 pm at Council Chambers, City Hall, 600 Elm Street for the purpose of considering the Final Environmental Impact Report (FEIR) for the San Carlos Transit Village proposed development. The meeting agenda, reports & full packet are available on www.epackets.net web site.

The Final Environmental Impact Report for the San Carlos Transit Village Project is immediately available at the San Carlos Library, 610 Elm Street, at the counter in San Carlos City Hall, 600 Elm Street, and on the city website:

The Project is a proposal for the development of an approximately 10.53 acre site owned by the San Mateo County Transit District (SamTrans) and located adjacent to the San Carlos Caltrain station within the railroad corridor approximately bounded by El Camino Real to the west, the Caltrain tracks to the east, Oak Street to the north, and Arroyo Avenue to the south.

The proposed development would include eight new buildings that would house 407,298 square feet of residential uses including 280 multiple-family dwelling units, 23,797 square feet of office uses, and 14,326 square feet of retail uses, underground and surface parking lots, a multi-modal transit center, public plaza, landscaping and retention of the historic depot.

The San Carlos Planning Commission held a public meeting on July 30 for the purpose of receiving a presentation on the FEIR for the Project from staff and consultants, for inquiry and discussion and for public comment.

A lot of information to digest, yet all that is available online is incredibly detailed and easy to read. Seems like a pool will be incorporated in the proposed development. Maybe it would be a good idea to incorporate a public pool for all San Carlos citizens to have access to in the proposed plan? Several years ago some noise was made and planning was approved to bring to Burton park. A public pool in the Transit Village would benefit San Carlos across most demographics. Maybe this is the opportunity to finally bring what has long been on San Carlos's families wish list?
