Mission Viejo Ca Development And Redevelopment

Plans to add a car wash and allow beer and wine sales at a Unocal gas station were denied Monday on a 3-2 vote by the Planning Commission. Commissioners believed the proposed expansion would have overcrowded the corner lot at Crown Valley Parkway and Puerta Real, an intersection that is already one of the busiest in the city.

City planners have recommended against a plan to add an express carwash and beer and liquor outlet at a Union Oil station. The expansion would generate more traffic in what is already a crowded intersection at Crown Valley Parkway and Puerto Real, Planning Director Clint Sherrod said. "This is the most active area in the city," he said this week. "This plan is too congested, and we're recommending denial."

The city will get $1.1 million for recreational facilities and roads under an agreement between the Mission Viejo Co. and the City Council. In a closed session Monday night, the council agreed to accept a cash settlement instead of requiring the company to build an 11-acre park at Olympiad Road and Alicia Parkway. The company made a commitment in 1987 to build the park as part of a development agreement for the planned community of Mission Viejo.

The city will return about $500,000 of the $3.5 million it was paid for land slated for a housing development because of unstable slopes on the property, officials said this week. City Manager Dan Joseph said the developer will have to cut into slopes on the property at a sharper angle than expected, which means that stabilizing the hillside will be more expensive that first projected.

A controversial 47-unit housing project that would have stripped most of the parking from the Nadadores Swim Club and a YMCA has been scuttled by the developer. Unable to win concessions to exceed city standards for housing density, project developer Polygon Communities has returned the Casta Del Sol property to its previous owner, the Mission Viejo Co. Under the Mission Viejo Co., the 9.2-acre parcel near Casta del Sol and Marguerite Parkway had been approved for 27 units.

The City Council has flatly rejected a move to overturn the Planning Commission's denial of approval for a 47-unit housing tract. Before more than 100 neighborhood residents who showed up to protest the plans, the council Monday night unanimously turned down the appeal and asked developer Polygon Communities to come back with a project that has fewer homes. "I see no compelling reason to approve" the developer's appeal, Councilwoman Susan Withrow said.

Residents can get a firsthand look at plans for the new city library at 7 tonight at City Hall, 25909 Pala. A scale model of the proposed $6-million building will be on display. Several city officials, library task force members and the project architect will be available to answer questions. "It will give people an opportunity to see what the library is all about and ask questions," said Mayor Sherri M. Butterfield, who has been a major force in the drive to build a new library.

Two projects are at the center of the city's growth plans for 1996: the new community library and a recently approved entertainment center. The latter, known as Kaleidoscope, is designed as a 200,000-square-foot project that will be a smaller version of the Edwards 21 theater complex that opened recently. As many as 16 movie screens are planned for the site at Crown Valley Parkway and Interstate 5, along with a food court and specialty retail stores.

The public got its first glimpse this week of plans for the new community library, which, with 26,600 square feet of space, will be much more than a repository for books. "We had one chance to do it right," Councilwoman Susan Withrow said. "And I think we've got it. We've left nothing unturned." At a meeting this week, the council approved preliminary plans for the facility, which will include a section for Saddleback Valley historical exhibits and another on the Holocaust.

A housing project that would have swallowed up much of the parking for the Nadadores swim complex has been rejected by the Planning Commission. The panel had criticized the 47-home project on Casta del Sol last month, saying the density proposed was too high. The builder, Polygon Communities, then requested a 30-day delay to come up with a different design. The new proposal, too, was turned down this week.
