Are More Hotels on the Horizon for San Carlos?
July 16, 2014
In its upcoming meeting on Monday July 21, the San Carlos Planning Commission will hold a hearing on a proposal to re-zone a two block stretch of Industrial Road between Holly Street and Quarry Road to allow the potential development of more hotels. There are already a couple of hotel projects in the works for that area of San Carlos, according to this article in the San Jose Mercury News, and rezoning of these parcels would clear the path for potentially more hotels to be built.
This would certainly be an economic boon to the City of San Carlos, which would stand to reap significant revenues from hotel taxes and increased patronage of the downtown dining area. And it also fills the need for more modern hotel room capacity for the mid-Peninsula since the Palo Alto Medical Foundation is slated to open later this year, and tech firms such as Oracle continue to grow.
If the proposed zoning change is approved by the Planning Commission, it must ultimately be approved by the San Carlos City Council at a future meeting. Stay tuned to this site for more details.
