Group seeks to overturn city's housing project
By Phil Diehl, August 14, 2017

A group of residents has filed a legal complaint seeking to overturn Carlsbad’s approval of a 90-apartment affordable housing complex to be built in the Barrio neighborhood with the help of a $7.2 million city loan.

Their biggest objection to the three-story Pacific Wind Apartments complex is that its tallest side would be too close to the small, single-story homes that dominate the Barrio, one of Carlsbad’s oldest neighborhoods, said Everett DeLano, an attorney for the Carlsbad Alliance for Responsible Development. He filed the writ of mandate last week in Vista Superior Court.

“They are not opposed to affordable housing,” DeLano said. “The main issue is the layout of the property.”

Pacific Wind, formerly known as the Harding Street Neighbors project, would cover about four acres along Harding Street west of Interstate 5, about a block north of Tamarack Avenue at the southeast end of the Barrio. Opponents of the project want the complex redesigned so that its tallest buildings would be next to the freeway, instead of looming over the old single-story homes. They want the complex’s parking lots and shorter buildings to face the neighborhood.
