On the agenda: City Council to review, vote on revised plan for 70-home Midwick development

Residents, city officials, and developing firm City Ventures have spent weeks coming up with a plan to address the hotly debated Midwick Tract development on 2400 South Fremont Avenue. City Council was supposed to vote on the project Feb. 23, but delayed the approval when Councilman Luis Ayala proposed that he meet with developers and community members to find a compromise.

That compromise is being presented tonight. Residents previously opposed the development citing concerns of unit density, loss of neighborhood character, and increased traffic. Since 2011, City Ventures scaled down from an initial plan of 200 units, settling for 70 structures across the 8.8 acres of land they own.

Now, City Ventures has also revised their plans to retain five homes that would have been destroyed along Carlos Street, a major concern of residents. The new blueprint also reduces a three-story complex along Carlos, turning it to two-stories. Furthermore, other units that were supposed to be built on the same street have been moved to the interior of the housing community. 

The City’s staff report says the plan has been revised to meet the community’s satisfaction, but notes that some still do not approve. 

City Ventures’ Midwick homes will go up before City Council for approval tonight. If approved, the Council would need to vote on it again at a later hearing, as per usual with these kinds of exemptions to land-use designation.

City Council usually meets every second and fourth Monday of the month at 5:30 and 7 p.m. at City Hall. Read the complete agenda below. You can also download the document or make it larger using the controls on the bottom.
