The Carmel Valley Community Planning Board (CVCPB) voted on the One Paseo project at the January 2016 special meeting. The result was split, with 5 FOR the project and 5 AGAINST the project. One Paseo will now move forward to the Planning Commission and the City Council without a formal recommendation from the community, but those groups will likely understand that the project is still contentious within the community. The Planning Commission hearing will likely be in late February or early March.
