The planning commission’s approval of the Downtown Precise Plan’s environmental impact report is set to be appealed before the City Council on Feb. 26, following a protest by a business owner whose law practice looks out onto the redevelopment area.
Attorney Joseph W. Carcione Jr. has asked the council to overturn the commission’s approval of the final environmental impact report, which would prevent the project from moving forward until his concerns are dealt with.
Carcione did not return calls requesting comment.
The Downtown Precise Plan is the latest in a long-running series of attempts to bring life into the core of Redwood City. The plan calls for the development of more high-density housing building over ground-floor retail with easy accessibility to both pedestriansand public transportation users.
If approved, the plan would call for the city to amend the 1990 Redwood City Strategic Plan.
Carcione’s appeal will be heard at the council meeting Feb. 26 at 7 p.m., 1017 Middlefield Road.
