Project Update

  • The City Council approved the Hillsdale Terraces Mixed Use Project on February 6, 2017. In their consideration of granting a height increase to 55’ along South El Camino Real, the Council imposed a Condition of Approval to satisfy the General Plan requirement for a project amenity that could include off-site public improvements. This condition required the payment of a $400,000 developer contribution. The October 2nd public hearing will be solely to determine the use of the $400,000.
