Public Input Sought on San Carlos Wheeler Plaza Redevelopment.
April 27, 2011
It has been a while since the San Carlos Wheeler Plaza redevelopment concept has been in news. But the City of San Carlos, along with development partner Silverstone Communities, has been steadily working on concepts of what to do — if anything — with the existing Wheeler Plaza site in downtown San Carlos. The most recent concept that I saw being discussed was for a multi-story, mixed residential/retail complex where the parking lot is currently situated. But that may have changed…
A big part of Silverstone's involvement in the early stages of conceptual development is to gather ideas and feedback from San Carlos business owners and residents about what should be done with this location. As such, they are holding a community meeting next week to solicit input from those stakeholders. Here are the details of the meeting, as outlined on the City website:
Wednesday, May 4, 2011 at 7:00 p.m.
San Carlos Library, 2nd Floor, Conference Rooms A & B
The City of San Carlos has been working with Silverstone Communities to explore the potential for redevelopment of the downtown surface parking lot known as Wheeler Plaza. Several city owned buildings adjacent to the parking lot would also be included in the site area.
This meeting will be an opportunity to brief property and business owners, community leaders, neighbors and interested citizens on the project and to hear and understand the issues and concerns of various stakeholders.
For those of you interested in what our downtown may look like in the next decade, this should be a very interesting meeting!
