Residents have asked the Costa Mesa Planning Commission to consider the big-picture impact of a proposed 54-acre expansion of the performing arts and town center area.

At a public hearing Monday, residents were allowed to testify about plans for a 2,500-seat symphony hall, a 140,000-square-foot art museum, a 140-seat expansion of South Coast Repertory, three new office buildings and two parking structures on a site bordered by Bristol Street, Sunflower Avenue, Avenue of the Arts and the San Diego Freeway.

"No one [proposal] can be properly analyzed out of context with others," said Costa Mesa resident Robin Leffler.

The city should review the project in conjunction with another major development proposal, former Mayor Sandra Genis said.

The city will accept public comment on the town center project's environmental report until Sept. 1.

The planning commission is scheduled to vote on the proposal Sept. 25.
