Small Planning Commission Agenda Monday Night

The Costa Mesa Planning Commission will meet again in City Council Chambers at 6:00 p.m. on Monday, October 26, 2015 for its final meeting of the month.  The short agenda may be viewed HERE.

There are only three (3) public hearings scheduled for the meeting Monday.  Public Hearing #1, HERE, is the Tentative Parcel Map for a previously-approved 2-unit Small Lot Subdivision Development at 1620 Orange Avenue, which will replace a old, 840 square foot house and 240 square foot detached garage.  The staff recommends approval.

Public Hearing #2, HERE, is the planning application for a new 9,835 square foot two-story mixed use office building, replacing the existing two-story, 15,185 multi-tenant medical office building at 350 East 17th Street, at the corner of Raymond and 17th Street.  The applicant will add more restaurant space to a growing "restaurant row" along that stretch of 17th Street and is asking for variances on front and street setbacks and a minor conditional use permit allowing reduction of shared parking spaces and a valet parking program.

Public Hearing #3, HERE, is the appeal of the Zoning Administrator's denial of minor CUP to allow deviation from hours of operation for the new, and apparently wildly successful, The Halal Guys restaurant at 3033 Bristol Street, Suite E.  The applicant currently operates from 11 a.m. - 11 p.m. daily.  The original request, since denied by the Zoning Administrator, was to operate from 11 a.m. - 3 a.m. daily.  They have subsequently revised their request to 11 a.m.- 12.a.m., Sunday through Wednesday and 11 a.m. - 1 a.m., Thursday through Saturday and have added security 11 p.m. - 1:30 a.m.  The staff has no recommendation one way or the other on this revised request.

Reduce parking for a restaurant? That's nuts. A restaurant can only stay in business if it can get customers inside. I refuse to use valet parking in Costa Mesa. I have had bad experiences with people driving my car. Not going to do that again. Guess I'll scratch that off my list.

reduced parking, patio dining within feet of residential and extended hours are all the rage, and totally hip. Pitfire Pizza, The Hub, Plum's, Avalon Bar, Wild Goose...

And now, too, Mendocino Farms on 17th is going for a liquor license. Drive-thru Starbucks at same property won't be far behind, even though property owner, Burnham USA PROMISED residents backing up to this property that no alcohol service would happen at either of these businesses. Burnham USA is NOT the "good neighbor" that they claimed they are, nor have EVER been.

Sounds like a certain business needs to pony up contributions and other goodies. Then everything will be fine. The fat get fatter.
