Planning Commission News & Notes
By Joe Bachman
Here is a rundown of notable items from Monday night’s planning commission meeting.
Fencing to be removed out of permit for Wilshire Boulevard apartments
A new 12 unit, 36 bedroom apartment complex which started construction last year will have a slight amendment to its conditional use permit. Located at Wilshire Boulevard. and Doolittle Drive by Stanley Street, the measure will actually remove fencing that was previously recommended. City officials believed that the natural vegetation would provide a fence of its own to screen residents from nearby businesses. The project should see completion by this year.
City approves right-of-way at Carrie Frost Drive
City officials have requested the acquisition of approximately 0.793 acres for use as a right-of-way by Carrie Frost Drive. This would be used to connect a proposed road north of the coming O’so Brewery facility. According to city documents, the measure would prevent vehicles from exiting onto County Highway HH from Carrie Frost Drive, in efforts to lower the impact of highway traffic. This would also serve as another entrance into the future East Park Commerce Center.
Worth Court to become Worth Drive
Officials approved a name change of a street, taking Worth Court, and changing it to Worth Drive. Worth Court is to be extended to connect to Clem’s Way, so it would no longer act as a cul-de-sac. Therefore, the measure was taken to change the name from court to street.
