Several members of the public, and incoming mayor Trish Spencer, and incoming councilmember Frank Matarrese, had criticized the December 16th vote for rushing the decision.
The Tuesday, January 6th ordinance, reversing that decision, is starkly simply, and reads:
WHEREAS, the Del Monte Warehouse Master Plan includes a project for a combination of residential and commercial uses that would be housed in the Del Monte Warehouse building and other new structures to be built on the site, including up to 380 housing units (which includes fifty-five (55) affordable units) and 30,000 square feet of commercial space; and
WHEREAS, on December 2, 2014 the City Council introduced the ordinance regarding this Master Plan Density Bonus Application and on December 16, 2014, the City Council passed Ordinance No. 3115 adopting the Master Plan and Density Bonus Ordinance for the Del Monte Warehouse.
NOW THEREFORE, BE IT ORDAINED by the City Council of the City of Alameda that:
Section 1. Ordinance No. 3115 is hereby repealed.
Section 3. This Ordinance shall be in full force and effect from and after the expiration of thirty (30) days from the date of its final passage.
