Planning Commission - General Plan + Developments
The Costa Mesa Planning Commission, led by Chairman Rob Dickson, meets again on Monday, March 28, 2016 beginning at 6:00 in City Council Chambers at City Hall and has a full agenda, including three developments which add 49 dwelling units to the city inventory. You can read most of it HERE.
GENERAL PLAN AND DRAFT EIR
I said "most" because the first Public Hearing, the 2015-2035 General Plan and Draft Environmental Impact Report had no staff report available at press time. I suppose it will become available sometime Thursday. Anyhow, the staff recommendations are to 1) Receive presentation of General Plan and Draft EIR and public comments and, 2) Continue to the Planning Commission meeting of April 11, 2016. Written comments on the Draft EIR must be submitted by 5:00 p.m., April 18, 2016.
6 UNITS ON HAMILTON
Public Hearing #2, HERE, is for a 6-unit, two-story Small Lot Development at 592 Hamilton Street. Minor deviations are being requested. I have no doubt the commission will move this one forward.
10 UNITS ON BERNARD
Public Hearing #3, HERE, is a 10-unit detached Small Lot Development at 522 and 526 Bernard Street within the Mesa West Residential Ownership Urban Plan. This one has several deviations, so it will be interesting to see if the commission just rolls over on this one and allows all, or any, of them.
33 UNITS AT HARBOR AND MERRIMAC
Public Hearing #4, HERE, is for a 33-unit, two-story detached residential common interest development at 2626 Harbor Blvd. It requests only one deviation, a reduction in the space between main buildings from 10 feet to 6 feet.
