Short-handed Planning Commission Approves Code Changes
QUICK NIGHTS WORK
Monday night the short-handed Costa Mesa Planning Commission - Tim Sesler and Stephan Andranian were absent - made quick work of two items on the agenda.
SORRY ABOUT THAT...
I apologize in advance for the crappy quality of the images. Because I attended another event - see next post - that was held a few yards away from this one, I had to photograph the images from my recording of this event.
MCCARTHY CARRIES THE LOAD
Chairman Rob Dickson, back from his vacation, guided the discussion, although Commissioner Colin McCarthy did nearly all the heavy lifting on these items.
An unidentified speaker told the commission of problems with a new night club on 19th Street - The Holiday - and advised them of recent noise complaints and that they are operating outside the permitted uses.
HARBOR BLVD. & NEWPORT BLVD. OVERLAY ZONES
Public Hearing #1, was bringing the various sections of the Municipal Code for two overlay zones approved in the General Plan for 2015-2035 into line with that General Plan. After a short staff report the following speakers addressed this issue.
After a very short discussion the commission voted, 3-0, to move this forward to the City Council.
FAIRVIEW DEVELOPMENTAL CENTER
Public Hearing #2 was a similar item, which brought the zoning requirements for the 100 acres of the Fairview Developmental Center into line with that new General Plan.
Linda Teng again was concerned about affordable housing.
Cynthia McDonald was concerned for Affordable Housing for women veterans.
THE STATE'S IN CONTROL
McCarthy again took the lead on this issue and reminded us that the State has control of this process, but these changes can provide a roadmap for any future developers. The issue passed on a 3-0 vote and the meeting adjourned until September 12th after only 65 minutes.
