A key element in the controversial development One Paseo was rejected by local officials at a packed Carmel Valley planning commission meeting Thursday.
One Paseo is a mixed-use village proposed for the corner of Del Mar Heights Road and El Camino Real in Carmel Valley. Plans include a parking structure, movie theater expansion, and new stores and eateries.
On Thursday, the Carmel Valley Planning Board voted against the plan’s Reduced Main Street but voted in support of the plan’s Reduced Mixed Use Alternative with additional square footage to allow the retail portion to hit 198,500 square feet, according to chair Frisco White.
“Our thinking is something is going to get approved so we just want to weigh in on what we think of the project and they can make their decision,” White said.
