Quito Village Development Project
Sand Hill Property Company owns the Quito Village shopping center at the corner of Cox Avenue and Paseo Prasada.

These state laws require the City to process this application in a specific way that differs from what many communities are familiar with.

At the Neighborhood Information Meeting on February 13, City staff answered many questions regarding the Quito Village Development Project application, the SB 35 process, and the City’s development standards. Some questions could not be answered during the meeting, and and those questions and answers are now available.
The City sent the letters below to Sand Hill Property Company regarding the review of their project application. These letters clarify information in the application and deem the project consistent with the law’s objective planning standards and eligible for streamlined, ministerial review.
- Preliminary Eligibility and Corrections Letter (PDF)
- Additional Comments Letter (PDF)
- SB 35 Consistency Determination Letter (PDF)
These letters issued ministerial approval for the project in accordance with SB 35. The City also submitted a list of requested modifications to the project. State law only requires Sand Hill Property Company to comply with the City’s objective development standards. They are not required to accommodate the City’s requested modifications, but we hope they will consider them to address the community’s concerns.
