Local activists opposed to a City Council-approved development planned for Olympic Boulevard announced Monday that they have collected 10,000-plus signatures to potentially force a special election that could nix the project.

Residocracy, the resident-led group spearheading the petition drive, is planning a rally at City Hall Tuesday to present the tally.

The rally is scheduled for 11 a.m.

The project, proposed by Texas-based developer Hines, includes 760,000-plus square feet of retail, housing and office space.

Critics say that it would add too much traffic to an already congested part of Santa Monica.
