UCPG Planning Group January Meeting Summary


Courtesy of Barry Bernstein, UCCA President:

At the January University Community Planning Group (UCPG) meeting, many University City residents having concerns related to the proposed construction of a single family dwelling on the property on the east side of Regents Road (5807 Regents Road) and across from Pennant Drive, attended the meeting to discuss related issues with the property owner.

UCCA previously had two meetings with the owners, their contractor, and the City Fire Department in the summer of 2015, when it first became known that the property was going to be developed.

The major concern was one of safety since the proposal to make a “curb cut” for in and out to the property onto a very busy road with a current 50 mph speed limit would be hazardous. The City is still working with the owners of the property on various compliance/code issues at this time.

Also, at this meeting, Alexandria,, a major national building/leasing company which primarily provides facilities for the bio -sciences industry, was requesting approval for a major addition to their property at the end of Campus Point Drive. UCPG’s committee which has been in conversations with Alexandria for over year, did not feel the supplemental EIR information was completed to their satisfaction and recommended to not endorse the project, at this time.

Janay Kruger, UCPG Chair, announced there was suit filed against the San Diego City Council based on the December 5 vote to approve the amendment to remove the Regents Rd. Bridge and Widening of Genesee from the Community Plan.

The next UCPG meeting is Tuesday, February 14. Information and agenda are available at https://www.sandiego.gov/planning/community/profiles/university/agendas
