Another Small Agenda For Planning Commission Monday Night


ONLY TWO ITEMS ON THE AGENDA
The Costa Mesa Planning Commission, guided by Chairman Rob Dickson, meets again on Monday, July 25 2016 beginning at 6:00 p.m. in City Council Chambers for what may be another short meeting.  The agenda may be viewed HERE.
A FOUR-UNIT SMALL LOT DEVELOPMENT ON 23RD STREET
Public Hearing #1, HERE, is yet another small lot development, this on at 127 East 23rd Street.  The commissioners will hear the request to construct four units on this lot.  This project has no deviations from the Municipal Code.
REPLACING STORAGE WITH HOMES
Public Hearing #2, HERE, is the proposal to replace a public storage facility at 929 Baker Street, behind the headquarters of the Newport Mesa Unified School District, with a 56-unit common interest residential development.  The timing of this proposal is interesting.  Recently the Planning Commission heard a request to replace existing businesses along Bristol Street just east of Red Hill with a new storage facility.  The applicants in that project cited the demand for storage in Costa Mesa, yet here were are, trying to replace an existing storage facility with more homes.  Curious, no?
MORE SOBER LIVING APPEALS COMING UP
Apparently this short meeting will allow the Planning Commission to get some rest in advance of what we're told will be an avalanche of sober living appeals, to the extent that Director of Development Services Gary Armstrong told them in a recent meeting to expect an accelerated schedule - more meetings per month - for the next few months.  That should be fun.

The Baker project proposes 56 homes with only 13 open parking spaces. All the other parking is in garages and driveways, and these are good sized homes. Will guests park in their neighbor's driveways?

The people who live on Milbro should be prepared for extra cars on their street.

They must be pretty sure of the project going through. A friend who had a storage unit at the place already had to clear out her stuff a few weeks ago. People were notified that the storage facility was being sold to make room for houses.

I spoke at a planning commission meeting about how nice the lack of traffic was in my neighborhood. dickson criticized my quality of life and argued for high density. his argument pitted my quality of life against the overloverlay zone, begging for high density to continue. He is a lap dog.
