45 units, 3% traffic increase.
....  "The PSD school board took the first step in developing the site for workforce housing by unanimously voting to seek requests for proposals for a design build contractor. The Oddstad School is not an active school site. ...  Many more public meetings will follow to approve the site plan. It will go before the Planning Commission and City Council, as well.

....  The project would build 45 units and cover 4.5 acres on an 11 acre site, but the PSD board may choose to use another acre, currently open, for 20 more units, PSD board president Matt Levie said.  'All PSD employees would be eligible. ...'   ....  In his clarifying comments, Levie said PSD would be restricted from renting it to anyone other than employees.  Addressing traffic, another study will be made as part of the environmental impact study, but right now, the projection shows a three percent increase in traffic."  Read article.

"Pacifica School District continues to weigh its options in its deliberation on what to do with its Oddstad property, a former school site that hasn’t been used to capacity in nearly 10 years. As the land hasn’t been used to its full potential, the Board is looking to put the property to full use by either selling or developing the property."  Fix Pacifica reprints, prior community meetings.
