Council to Consider Gold Line Condominium Project

The City Council will hear public comments on the proposed 53-unit townhome condominium project at 351 South Glendora Avenue across from the Glendora Post Office at tonight's council meeting at the .

The public is invited to comment on the proposed 2.9 acre-project by City Ventures, LLC., which will be located adjacent to the planned future Glendora Gold Line station. The station will be built on the site of the former train station, which was demolished in the 1960's.

The project proposes five townhome clusters fronting Glendora Avenue and Ada Avenue with two-car garages accessed from the private drive and auto courts.

The City Council will consider the project’s Development Plan Review, the minor conditional use permit,  as well as elimination of a mixed-use requirement for the project. The project, which is located in the Route 66 Specific Plan, was originally zoned to include mixed-use development. The Planning Commission determined that a mixed use element was not needed for this particular development, given the project's proximity to stores nearby and the number of vacant lease space already in the area.

The project had been originally planned for 54 units, until the Planning Commission felt there was not enough open space play area for residents. According to city staff reports, one of the units was eliminated to make room for a play area.

City Manager Chris Jeffers said upon the council's approval of the project, construction can begin this year.

Those who are unable to attend the hearing must send comments in writing and deliver them to the City Clerk prior to the scheduled hearing date.

Related documents are available at the City Clerk’s Office at City Hall. The City Clerk’s Office is open Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, call the Department of Planning and Redevelopment at (626) 914-8218.
