General CV Planning Board Information

This page displays CV Planning Board info, but is not part of the Planning Board. It is run by a long-time community resident (Ken Farinsky - who writes all the posts and enters all the information without cost to the planning board. Note from Ken: I work hard to ensure that no opinions are posted on the planning board page of the site. However, the rest of the site contains content that may include opinions of the author.

The Carmel Valley Community Planning Board (CVCPB) is a group of elected volunteers who meet monthly to review and to evaluate proposed development plans and issues affecting the entire Carmel Valley and Pacific Highlands Ranch (PHR) communities. Serving in an advisory capacity, the CVCPB offers specific comments, recommendations and decisions to the City of San Diego's Department of City Planning & Community Investment, Planning Commission and City Council. The CVCPB has direct involvement with city, county and local law enforcement agencies.

Regular meetings on the Fourth Thursday of each month, at the CV Library.

One Paseo article in Carmel Valley News

The Carmel Valley News is covering the upcoming One Paseo meeting on August 28, 2014 (7pm at the CCA Theater, 5951 Village Center Loop Road.) Read their take on the story, and consider attending the meeting to give your opinion!

One Paseo FEIR now available online!

The One Paseo FEIR is now available online! Just visit the One Paseo FEIR Page (sorry, it's on the WhatPriceMainStreet? site, the only place it's available.) Note that some of the files are HUGE, and that I'm working on splitting them up into smaller parts. For now, you'll have to download some big files to read Kilroy's information.

For what it's worth, the One Paseo Findings - Statement of Overriding Considerations document is the overview document, and an attempt by the City to justify placing the project in Carmel Valley, even with all of the impacts. Read that document to see what they're thinking.

One Paseo Final EIR available, meeting scheduled

The Final One Paseo Environmental Report (EIR) has been released, and a Public Comment meeting scheduled. Councilmember Sherri Lightner has released the following statement (edited here for length, emphasis mine), saying: "On Thursday, August 28 at 7 p.m., the Carmel Valley Community Planning Board will be holding a meeting to discuss the One Paseo project Final Environmental Impact Report. Residents and business owners are encouraged to review the document at the Carmel Valley Library. If you provided comments on the Draft EIR, you should have received an email notification today. You will also be receiving via U.S. mail a CD of the final EIR. If you did not provide comments but would like a copy of the Final EIR on CD, please contact Martha Blake in Development Services at and provide your name and complete mailing address. The CD will be sent to you via U.S. mail. As always, please feel free to contact my office if you have any questions or concerns, or if our office may be of assistance with any other issue. Best Regards, Sherri S. Lightner, Council President Pro Tem, District 1, City of San Diego."

Peñasquitos Canyon Electric Transmission Line Expansion

Laura Copic, our Neighborhood 10 representative on the Carmel Valley Planning Board, has asked me to post the following announcement. She would like community members to be aware of and be able to attend the public scoping meetings so that they can provide their input. For more information, please read the attached Sycamore-Peñasquitos Canyon Fact Sheet (PDF), or visit the Sycamore-Peñasquitos Canyon Project Web Site.

San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E) has filed an application to construct the Sycamore-Peñasquitos 230-kV Transmission Line Project (Proposed Project) with the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC). The Proposed Project is located in your community. The CPUC is currently reviewing SDG&E’s application, and Panorama Environmental, Inc. (Panorama) is a CPUC contractor assisting with California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) compliance. An overview fact sheet of the Proposed Project area is attached for your reference. Additional project information can be found at the CPUC Web page for the Sycamore-Peñasquitos Canyon Project:

The public scoping period will begin on Monday, Aug. 18, 2014, and will end on Tuesday, Sept. 16, 2014. The CPUC welcomes comments on potential environmental issues and potential alternatives to the Proposed Project during the scoping period. Information about the methods for submitting comments is included in the attached fact sheet. Comments gathered during the scoping period will help inform the development of the Environmental Impact Report.

One Paseo EIR coming Friday, Aug 1, 2014?

We've heard the Final One Paseo Environmental Report (EIR) is going to be released this weekend, possibly Friday, Aug 1, 2014 (although it's been delayed before!) Also, the local Planning Board hearing will likely be on Thursday, August 28, 2014. Please plan on attending this important meeting.

CV Planning Board Agenda, July 2014

The Carmel Valley Community Planning Board will hold it's regular monthly meeting on July 24, 2014 from 7:00 to 10:00 pm at the Carmel Valley Library, 3919 Townsgate Drive. The July Agenda is attached. SPECIAL NOTE: One Paseo is NOT on this month's agenda. The Agenda includes information on the September 2014 Carmel Valley 5k Trail Run, and on the Urban Forestry Plan. Additional information can be found at the CV Planning Board Page on this site, or on the City's website at the Carmel Valley, San Diego Community Page.

One Paseo meeting NOT in July 2014

One Paseo will NOT be on the CV Planning Board agenda in July, as the Environmental Report is not yet complete. Additional news will be posted when available. For more information on the planning board and its subcommittees, see the CV Planning Board Page on this site.

CV Planning Board One Paseo Final Hearing?

The CV Planning Board announced that it will hold a hearing on the final One Paseo Environmental Report on Thursday, July 24, 2014 (possibly at the CCA Auditorium.) UPDATE 7/14/2014: Canceled. The environmental report is not yet ready, so this meeting will be rescheduled based on the completion of the document. This meeting is meant to allow the public to comment on Kilroy's latest plans for One Paseo before the Planning Board makes its final decision (possibly on July 31.) The only problem? The Environmental Report isn't available yet! That means you can't actually see the document, and there's barely 2 weeks left to review a multi-thousand page document before the board hears the issue! For additional information on the planning board and its subcommittees, see the CV Planning Board Page on this site.
