DRC Update and More!

Wednesday's Development Review Committee (aka DRC) meeting was a mixed bag of applications.  Ten in all.  Some of the highlights were new signs for Wendy's to go with their new remodel; signage for Cafe X20 which will be taking over the Garden Grill at 335 West Foothill; and a sign program proposed by the Gold Line Construction Authority to help promote businesses that are being affected by the closure of Myrtle Avenue. 

A new house at 514 South Fifth Avenue was approved.  This replaces a house that was destroyed by a fire.  (Is it just us, or have there been a lot of house fires in the past year?)

Also on the agenda was a review of the new floor plan for Wang's restaurant on East Lemon in Old Town and a couple of residential additions.

In other news, the Planning Commission will be reviewing requests to serve alcoholic beverages at two restaurants at their meeting on February 12.  You can get the details here.  

We'll give you the update next week.

Oh, yes and we'd be remiss if we didn't give one last shout out to the Housing Element.  It received final approval by the City Council on Tuesday, February 4.  Curious?  We thought you might be, so check it out here.
