In December, Eden Housing submitted a planning application to the City of Palo Alto, which is being processed at the staff level under streamlining. Now the City has until March 2022 to approve the project’s entitlements.
City staff have decided to hold an Architectural Review Board (ARB) Study Session for the project on Thursday, February 17 at 8:30am to give ARB members and the public the opportunity to provide feedback on our latest proposed design. We need supporters like you to voice support for the project during this session or by writing letters to the Architectural Review Board (arb@CityofPaloAlto.org). The agenda for the meeting on February 17 has not been published — we will share it once it is available.
Located at 525 East Charleston Road near Mitchell Park in Palo Alto, the Mitchell Park Project is a mixed-use development that will contribute to the vibrant neighborhood around Mitchell Park with a new office space for public social services as well high-quality affordable housing for lower-income households, including special needs housing for the intellectually and developmentally disabled community. In this excellent location, we propose to build a 2,700-square-foot office space and 50 rental apartments for individuals and households earning at or below 30% to 60% of the area median income, equivalent to an annual income of $35,000 to $70,000 for a one-person household.
