Hillel consideration delayed for new council

The city council hearing on the controversial Hillel Jewish Student Center proposal for a 12,100-square-foot religious facility for UCSD students will be moved from Friday’s agenda, likely into the new year.

Michelle Ganon, Council President Scott Peters spokeswoman, noted the new council, which has four new members, will meet on Dec. 8 and 9 and then be off for the holidays. Items for the final two council meetings of the year have already been docketed.

“Hillel will wait until the next council and next year, certainly,” said Gannon.

The project, with underground parking, is proposed for a small triangular across from the university and abutting a single-family neighborhood. The issue had originally been scheduled to be heard Tuesday, Dec. 2, but was continued because a question arose as to whether the matter had been properly noticed in local publications.
