A divided San Diego City Council voted 6-3 this week to approve the first major housing project along the new Morena Boulevard trolley line despite concerns the project isn’t dense enough and includes no low-income units.
Council members in opposition said San Diego needs to demand all projects have at least 10 percent of the units designated as low-rent to help solve the city’s housing affordability crisis.
“We’re never going to come together and move the mountain unless we are showing others we are going to be standing up on that word,” Councilman Chris Ward of University Heights told his colleagues.
They also said the project, 150 apartments on the 6-acre site of the Coastal Trailer Villa recreational vehicle park, isn’t nearly dense enough considering it’s on a new trolley line connecting Old Town and La Jolla, slated to open in 2021.
