The proposed project has been written about extensively in the past week, including today in Michael Fitzgerald’s column.
At Tuesday’s City Council meeting, the developers of the proposal will appeal the Planning Commission’s rejection. You can view the 13-page appeal document here, filed by Michael Hakeem. A couple of paragraphs from his appeal:
“MCD North Stockton disagrees the development of the BCE project constitutes leap frog development. On the contrary, the BCE project represents smart in-fill growth in North Stockton.”
“The BCE project is an in-fill project South of Eight Mile Road. Furthermore, this area of development has been included in the City’s General Plan at least as far back as the 1990 General Plan and is located inside the City of Stockton’s 10-year Sphere of Influence approved by the Local Area Formation Committee in September of 2008. This project represents smart in-fill growth in North Stockton, not leap frog development.”
