This June, voters in Davis will decide on a housing proposal that would add 2,200 residential "beds."
The Davis City Council approved adding the Nishi proposal to June's ballot on Wednesday.
The project, geared toward housing University of California, Davis students, calls for roughly 700 two- and three-bedroom multi-family rental units, 700 parking spaces and almost 14 acres of open space.
Davis has a 0.4 percent vacancy rate, but the city notes that the Nishi proposal will help with rental housing.
The housing would be adjacent to UC Davis with a roadway needed under the railroad tracks.
The general election in Davis is scheduled for June 5.
