A proposed Foothill Boulevard Shopping Center was called "a good project" by planners but "overdeveloped" by neighbors during a La Canada Flintridge Planning Commission meeting Tuesday night.
Commission Chairman John S. Wynton termed the plan for the 21,000-square-foot complex aesthetically pleasing, but asked the developer, Sabrina Properties of Glendale, to present the commission next month a detailed study of traffic and sewage impacts.
It was the second public hearing on the proposed Craftsman-style shopping center, to be located between Gould and Woodley avenues on Foothill Boulevard.
The developer is seeking a city conditional use permit for the project.
Plans for the 12-store shopping center call for three free-standing buildings shingled with redwood, and a paved pedestrian mall. A two-level subterranean garage with room for 118 cars has residents living near the site concerned about traffic and noise.
