Romney Extends Public Review Process for Mansion Expansion
Architects hired to remodel Mitt Romney's La Jolla Shores home are giving the public additional time to review the presidential candidate's mansion expansion.
The project calls for demolishing Romey's existing $12 million, single-story 3,009 square-foot home to make room for a two-story, 11,062 square-foot mansion. Plans for Romney's rebuild include a 3,668 square-foot basement and a 692 square-foot garage.
Initially, the last day for the public to have a chance to comment on the project was Friday, September 9. However, that changed when Camila von Bommel from La Jolla-based architectural firm, Island Architects, filed an extension on September 7, which added three additional weeks. The deadline for public comments is now September 27.
