The Carlsbad City Council voted unanimously to pass the Caruso Affiliated project that promises to bring a Nordstrom and other high-end retail stores to the area.
“They can’t just do anything they want. We need and deserve, as citizens, to have this project put to a vote,” said De’Ann Weimer, president of the Citizens for North County.
The council was berated for being out of touch with their citizens, and now are politically stuck between a rock and a hard place trying to decide between three options.
The City Council can rescind their approval of the development and set a date for a special election for the project, which will cost $500,000, or stall the vote until November of 2016 when the next election cycles.
No decision is expected until Nov. 18.
