The City Council received a preliminary report Tuesday on two alternatives for developing 39 acres of land at Santa Monica Airport, one of the largest development projects in the city's history.
But council members said that more ideas and the views of the community should be considered in deciding what to do with the land.
The council voted to ask the Planning Commission to work with the staff to increase public input in drawing up a request for proposals from developers. The request, which is scheduled to be issued in October, would outline the requirements and limitations for developing the land.
In February, the council approved a schedule for deciding what to do with the land, which will be available for development as a result of the reorganization of the airport. The plan envisions beginning construction in two years.
