A developer has asked the city to drop its requirement for 48 low-income housing units in a planned future development where the Los Alisos Kmart once stood.
The city council will decide the issue Monday night.
Earlier this month the planning commission voted to support the removal of the requirement in a 2-1 vote.
Developer UDR asked for the change following a Dec. state supreme court decision that . Mission Viejo's redevelopment agency would have helped pay for the affordable housing units.
Last August, after five hours of debate, under the condition that 48 units be reserved for low-income housing. Several residents spoke out against the complex as a whole.
City staff says the city can still provide enough affordable housing to meet state requirements without the 48 units designated for the purpose in this complex.
