A Busy Night Ahead For The Planning Commission

A FULL PLATTER
The Costa Mesa Planning Commission meets Monday, April 13, 2015, for what certainly looks to be a very busy evening.  You can read the agenda HERE.

FOUR PUBLIC HEARINGS
There are four public hearings on the agenda, the first two of which had been rescheduled from the March 23rd meeting and will probably each take a significant amount of time to process.

HIGH-RISE RESIDENTIAL AT 3350 AVENUE OF THE ARTS
Public Hearing #1, HERE,  is the planning application and master plan amendment for a 23-story, 100-unit high-rise residential building and a 6.5 level shared parking structure at 3350 Avenue of the Arts.  This is a modification of the previously-approved project at the same site and requires several variances.  This will likely be the first project of this type this particular commission has tackled, so it should be interesting to watch the process.
28 UNITS AT 1239 VICTORIA STREET
Public Hearing #2, HERE, is the is a General Plan amendment, Rezone, Planning Application and Vesting Tentative Tract Map for a 28-unit residential development at 1239 Victoria Street.  This project has also been modified from the original plan, but still requires several adjustments/variances.  This one will also likely generate a significant amount of discussion.
REDUCE REAR YARD SETBACK AT 2967 CEYLON DRIVE
Public Hearing #3, HERE, is a Planning Application for a variance form second story rear yard setback for a second unit at 2967 Ceylon Drive.

TW0-UNIT DEVELOPMENT AT 334 EAST 16TH STREET
Public Hearing #4, HERE, is the Planning Application and Tentative Parcel Map for a two-unit residential development at 334 East 16th Street.
COULD BE A LONG NIGHT
There's no telling how long this meeting will take.  Each of the public hearings could generate significant discussion and/or public comments.

Not that the duo homes on 16th Street are ugly, although I don't like them, but I sure would hate to have to have someone drive past my window every time they leave the house. That is a pretty narrow driveway. Makes both houses very unattractive and inconvenient.

I predict that regardless of the information that is presented, any and all variances will be granted. That's what a planning commission is for, right?

...and Mensinger gets an industry award for bringing over 2,000 housing units to Costa Mesa. All "Above Moderate" units (Affordability by Household Income) per the recently approved Annual Review of the CM General Plan.
