Planning Commission Tackles 3 Small Lot Projects
EASTSIDE PROJECTS FILL THE AGENDA
The Costa Mesa Planning Commission, under the leadership of Chairman Stephan Andranian, will meet again Monday, March 13, 2017 to deal with three (3) separate Eastside developments which fall under the controversial Small Lot Ordinance, replacing 3 dwelling units with eight (8). The meeting begins at 6:00 p.m. in City Council Chambers. The full agenda report is HERE.
VACATION OF RIGHT-OF-WAY
Following the Consent Calendar, which includes a right-of-way vacation request at 152 East 19th Street, HERE, the commission will deal with the three public hearings mentioned above.
4 UNITS AT 353 EAST 18TH STREET
Public Hearing #1, HERE, is a design review and tentative parcel map for a project at 353 East 18th Street which replaces one single story dwelling and replaces it with four (4) 2-story, 4-bedroom units of over 2,000 square feet each. Despite being guided by the Small Lot Ordinance this project asks for an additional variance.
2 UNITS AT 391 LA PERLE PLACE
Public Hearing #2, HERE, is a design review and tentative parcel map for a project at 391/393 La Perle Place, replacing a single story dwelling with two (2) 2-story 4-bedroom units of more than 2,500 square feet each. This project appears to meet all the requirements of the Small Lot Ordinance.
2 UNITS AT 326 EAST 16TH STREET
Public Hearing #3, HERE, is another Small Lot Subdivision project at 326 East 16th Street. This project replaces a single-story single family residence with two (2) 2-story units of greater than 2,300 square feet each. One unit is 3-bedroom and the other is 4-bedroom. This project appears to meet the Small Lot Ordinance requirements and provides additional open space.
COMMISSION GETTING DOWN TO BUSINESS
This will be the first meeting of the new commission where they can actually dig their teeth into some projects. It will be interesting to see them work on these projects.
