The El Centro City Council will pull an all-nighter Wednesday as it addresses a myriad of high-profile projects, including a final environmental impact report on a 465-home subdivision south of Interstate 8, the establishment of a business improvement district for the downtown, a $2 million loan for the city's general fund and the widening of Ross Avenue.
The council meets in open session at 6:30 p.m. at 1275 Main St.
A group of south El Centro residents calling itself Keep Clark Road Country committee is lined up against the subdivision. The group claims the project EIR is lacking in numerous areas, including impacts on road and traffic conditions, on McCabe School, to the El Centro Equestrian Center, to the police weapons range and that the project is not consistent with the city's general plan. The 120-acre project is south of the freeway between Imperial Avenue and Clark Road north of McCabe Road.
