Important Stuff On The Planning Commission Agenda Monday



AN ACTION-PACKED AGENDA MONDAY
The Costa Mesa Planning Commission meets Monday evening, October 12, 2015 at 6:00 p.m. in City Council Chambers and this meeting is sure to be fun-filled.  On the agenda, HERE, are a NEW Sober Living Ordinance,  the future of the Costa Mesa Motor Inn, and more.

CONDOS ON THURIN
The first Public Hearing, HERE, is the Tentative Parcel Map for 2136 Thurin Avenue to create four two-story condominium units.
NEW GROUP HOME ORDINANCE
Public Hearing #2, HERE, is the much-anticipated code amendment dealing with Group Homes, Sober Living Facilities, Boarding Houses and Residential Care Facilities.  The 105-page staff report provides all the information you will need, especially the list of the various Zoning Districts where such businesses will be permitted.  Don't panic... the first 9 pages give you most of the important information.
COSTA MESA MOTOR INN REPLACEMENT
Public Hearing #3, HERE,  is the General Plan Amendment, Rezoning and Master Plan for the replacement of the much-maligned, 236-room Costa Mesa Motor Inn with a 224 unit luxury apartment complex.  You will recall that this is one of those so-called "problem motels" the Mayor and Mayor Pro Tem have been harping about for a couple years.  This is the first one to knuckle-under to the heavy-handed approach to "helping" owners of such places to "reassess" their perception of the value of the properties by slamming them with public safety violations and fines.  Members of the Costa Mesa Affordable Housing Coalition will likely be in attendance to protest this move, which apparently extracts dozens of affordable housing units from Costa Mesa's inventory.
LEGALIZING ILLEGAL USES
Public Hearing #4, HERE, is the application for a Conditional Use Permit at 126 Rochester Street - the former location of Wright Hardware, a fixture at that location for decades -  to legalize a 31 foot long by 34 foot wide skateboard ramp; legalize 9 shipping containers located in the parking lot and approve specified outdoor corporate events and functions, including utilizing the skateboard ramp, by the tenant, Element Skateboards.

Re: photo of skate ramps. I'd like Jim F. or Jamie Jo to tell us how that should be approved because it's better than ... I can't think of what it's better than.
