The Peninsula Arts Guild (PAG) is proposing to renovate the existing Guild Theatre cinema facility into a live entertainment venue. Through the construction and addition of a finished basement and a new second floor, the building floor area would increase from 4,800 square feet to approximately 10,662 square feet. The project requires amendments to the El Camino Real/Downtown Specific Plan and consideration under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA).
The City Council held a study session on the proposal on February 13, 2018 (staff report). At this meeting, Council Members generally expressed support for the concept. The project has since been under staff review, and is expected to come before the Planning Commission and City Council for review and action in early/mid 2018.
