    The Design Review Board will hold a public hearing on a proposal to develop a 6.5-acre light industrial site in the northeast portion of the City of East of Palo Alto, San Mateo County. The project site is approximately one-half mile east of U.S. Highway 101, north of Bay Road, and at the end of Pulgas Avenue. The proposed development would involve the construction of 80 new live-work units, an approximately 21,279-square-foot community green in the center of the project site, and an approximately 46,586-square-foot community open space area along the northern boundary of the project site that would include an informal play and sports area, an overlook, a rain water garden to create wetland habitat and filter storm water picnic tables, barbecues, benches and lighting. A series of public access trails running east-west and north-south through the project site are proposed, including a 12-foot-wide paved Bay Trail with public access signage running east-west along the northern edge of the property, and an eight-foot-wide and a five-foot-wide path running north-south along the western and eastern edges of the community green, respectively. An approximately 1,000-square-foot, 11.5-foot-high community building and 1,274-square-foot playground are proposed within the community green in the center of the project site.
