The development proposal is governed by the 2005 Owner Participation Agreement between the former City of San Diego Redevelopment Agency and Ballpark Village, LLC, which includes the Ballpark Village Master Plan (“Master Plan”) which establishes the standards for development of the site including minimum and permitted land uses, maximum Floor Area Ratio (FAR), the mass and height of buildings, and design standards. As part of this development proposal, the Applicant is seeking deviation from the Building Bulk criteria of the Centre City Planned District Ordinance and deviations from the following Master Plan development standards:
1) Elimination of the requirements that each of the three sub-parcels within the site provide a minimum FAR of 6.0 to allow an overall FAR of approximately 6.41 in conformance with the Master Plan;
2) Elimination of the prohibition of on-street parking along the east side of Park Boulevard;
3) Increase in the maximum tower width from 100 to 120 feet;
4) Reduction in the minimum depth of retail space along Park Boulevard from 30 to 23 feet;
5) Reduction in the Twelfth Avenue sidewalk from 15 to 12 feet;
6) Elimination of the required 10-foot building stepback at a height of 60 feet along both Park Boulevard and Imperial Avenue;
7) Elimination of the required building stepbacks within the L Street and Eleventh Avenue pedestrian mews;
8) Allowance for the encroachment of architectural features and a pedestrian bridge within the pedestrian mews; and,
9) Elimination of the primary façade modulation requirements.

This Project is covered under the Final Environmental Impact Report (FEIR) for the San Diego Downtown Community Plan, Centre City Planned District Ordinance, and 10th Amendment to the Centre City Redevelopment Plan, certified by the Former Redevelopment Agency (“Former Agency”) on March 14, 2006 (Resolution R-04001) and subsequent addenda to the FEIR certified by the Former Agency on August 3, 2007 (Former Agency Resolution R-04193), April 21, 2010 (Former Agency Resolutions R-04508 and R-04510), and August 3, 2010 (Former Agency Resolution R-04544). The Project is within the scope of the development program described in the FEIR and the potential environmental impacts of the Project were adequately addressed in the FEIR; therefore, no further environmental documentation will be required under California Environmental Quality Act.

The decision of the CivicSD Board is final unless an appeal is filed. The decision may be appealed to the Planning Commission by filing an appeal within ten (10) business days of the CivicSD Board's decision. In order to file an appeal, you must have expressed an interest in the project by either submitting a written letter or email to the CivicSD Board prior to, or at, the Public Hearing or provided oral testimony at the Public Hearing.

The public is invited to attend this Public Hearing and express any comments to the CivicSD Board, who will take the comments into consideration in its decision.
