The Carlsbad Planning Commission Wednesday postponed its public hearing regarding a 656-home development proposed for the site of an old rock quarry.
Quarry Creek Investors, LLC, the applicant for the Quarry Creek Master Plan, requested a continuance of the hearing until the commission’s next meeting on Feb. 20. The commission approved the applicant’s request in a 6-1 vote. Commissioner Thomas Arnold voted against the continuance and asked to hear the applicant’s reason for the request.
Todd Galarneau, a senior vice president at The Corky McMillin Companies, didn’t specify the applicant's reasons for the request, but said the additional time would allow the developer to “work through mitigations in greater detail.” McMillin added that there will be no new impacts from the project.
“Our goal from the beginning is to bring you as complete a project as we can … and work through all the issues before coming to the planning commission,” Galarneau said. “We do have a few remaining issues. We feel with the continuance we’ll be able to work through those and make progress on those issues and bring back a more complete project to you on the 20th.”
The item was the only matter on the commission’s agenda. After the commission makes its recommendation, the Carlsbad City Council will have the final decision on the project.
