Two Sober Living Items Yanked From Planning Commission Agenda
IT WILL BE A SHORT NIGHT MONDAY
The Costa Mesa Planning Commission meets again on Monday, August 22, 2016 beginning at 6:00 p.m. in City Council Chambers at City Hall and the agenda, HERE, was changed since originally issued.
2 SOBER LIVING ISSUES PULLED
Public Hearings #4 and #5 were continued to September 12, 2016. These items, HERE and HERE are requests for Conditional Use Permits for two sober living homes at 165 E. Wilson Street and 2041 Tustin Avenue. The applicant is Keith Randle, a Newport Beach resident who lives just a couple blocks from me. There is no indication as to why these items have been continued, but it's my understanding that they are the tip of the iceberg of sober living issues about to descend on the Planning Commission.
NORTH COSTA MESA SPECIFIC PLAN VS. GENERAL PLAN
Public Hearing #1, HERE, is a request to amend the North Costa Mesa Specific Plan as related to Home Ranch, 3350 Avenue of the Arts and Sakioka Lot 2. Staff recommends approval of the proposed amendments to bring the projects into compliance with the most recent 2015-2035 General Plan adopted in June.
AMENDING HOME RANCH DEVELOPMENT AGREEMENT
Public Hearing #2, HERE, is the 4th amendment to the Home Ranch Development Agreement. The staff report - all 173 pages - provides plenty of information. However, the first page tells you what this is all about. This amendment is to address the following:
- Correct the inconsistency and clear up the uncertainty related to the State dedicated land;
- Add the 10,000 SF Water District Parcel to the Office Portion for all purposes;
- Reflect the allocation in the Trip Budget between the Office Portion and the Industrial Portion;
- Update the description of the Office Portion; and,
- Ensure that the development Agreement includes and references the changes to the Home Ranch Project approved by the City.
Public Hearing #3, HERE, is a planning application for a conditional use permit to allow extended hours of operation for customer service and sale of alcoholic beverages for on-site consumption after 11:00 p.m. for a new restaurant (Oak and Coal) located at 333 East 17th Street, Suite 2. This is the former site of Union Jack Fish and Chips. The propose operating hours are 6:00 p.m. - 11:00, Monday thru Thursday and 6:00 p.m. to midnight, Friday and Saturday.
