Westlake voters will decide whether to allow changes to development at and The Promenade.
City Council approved an amendment to the zoning, which would allow 22 apartments to be built above in The Promenade. That building, which also contains , is not zoned for housing.
Council president Michael Killeen explained that, under the city charter, voters must approve these changes, as it is a change in the housing density allowed in the development's zoning.
The issue is expected to go on the November 6 ballot.
These proposed apartments would be alongside a planned hotel which will be built in what is now parking lot and open space behind the Borders building towards Crocker Road.
One resident expressed concern if the new building would cut off access to from Promenade parking, as parking spots near the movie theatre would be lost when the hotel and apartments are built. Actual building plans have not yet been submitted to the city.
