The San Marino City Council Wednesday night voted 3-1 in front of a capacity crowd to adopt the much debated draft Housing Element. The Element will likely be sent to the State early next week, after which point the City will learn (within 90 days) if it is certified.
Councilman Allan Yung voted against adopting the Housing Element because he disagreed with some of the specific language in the document that might give the city cause for concern. Councilman Richard Sun recused himself of the Housing Element discussion, telling attendees that he had a poolhouse.
The council meeting featured many concerned residents of San Marino who made sure the Council did not bow to the pressures placed upon them by the State. Among the vocal were Steve Talt and Brad Ball.
There was virtually no discussion of mixed-use development Wednesday, as most of the meeting was spent discussing whether or not and how to edit about a dozen portions of the Housing Element. Second units are the only alternative being considered by the Council.
