CityPlace hearing to be delayed 

A ruling on a proposal to build a five-story mall in the economically battered Mid-Market neighborhood is expected to be delayed.

The Planning Commission was scheduled this afternoon to vote to approve or reject plans to build CityPlace, and to certify or reject the project’s environmental impact report, but the votes are expected to be delayed, according to Commission Chairman Ron Miguel.

Miguel said the delay will allow Commissioner Gwyneth Borden, who is out of town today on business-related travel, to participate in the vote.

The most contentious element of the plans is a proposal to include multiple levels of underground parking.

The glass-façade mall is proposed on Market Street between Fifth and Sixth streets.

Today’s votes might be rescheduled for July.
