The second in a series of meetings about traffic impacts expected as part of the Portola Center housing development will be rescheduled from Oct. 22 to an unspecified date in November, city staffers announced this week.
Residents following the evolution of the plan to build up to 930 units in Portola Hills spoke up when the Oct. 22 date was announced, voicing concern that holding a meeting the night of the final debate between presidential candidates would reduce attendance.
"Our country is so polarized with this election that I believe a vast majority of the people who might attend the Traffic Workshop will stay home instead to watch the debate," said Portola Hills resident Dave Herzberg when the October date was first announced.
The decision to reschedule the meeting is in response to feedback received from the community, city spokeswoman Debra Rose said.
A date has yet to be selected for the meeting, but it will be sometime in November, according to the city.
At the meeting, stakeholders will review the results of studies completed since the first traffic workshop and discuss options for access to the Portola Center project site.
