Harlan To Be Sworn-In Monday
The new Costa Mesa Planning Commission meets again on Monday, February 27, 2017 beginning at 6:00 p.m. in City Council Chambers at City Hall and the first order of business will be to swear-in and seat their remaining new member, attorney Jeffrey Harlan- the highest vote getter in the recent selection process. He missed the last meeting when his peers were installed due to a family emergency. You can read the agenda for this short meeting HERE.
TIME EXTENSION FOR 585 AND 595 ANTON BLVD.
There are two public hearings scheduled for this meeting. The first one, HERE, is the request for a one-year time extension for the Final Master Plan and Vesting Tentative Tract Map for a high rise condominium project at 585 and 595 Anton Blvd. The project approvals were originally granted on October 8, 2007 and will expire on October 8, 2017 unless the extension is granted. The staff recommends approval of the request.
ROLLIN DEEP ICE CREAM ON BAKER STREET
Public Hearing #2, HERE, is for a Conditional Use Permit to allow the establishment of a food service use at 891 Baker Street, Suite B-19. The staff recommends approval subject to conditions.
EASING INTO IT, BUT WAIT...
It's likely this meeting will be a short one, but the commission shouldn't get used to it. Once the City Council decides the direction they're going with Sober Living Homes, the log jam of pending applications will descend upon them like water out of the spillway at Oroville Dam. They should enjoy this easy transition period, because the real heavy lifting awaits them.
