Garden Grove

City limits, housing stock on the grow?

GARDEN GROVE Planning Commission will meet on Thursday, April 6 to consider a 70-unit housing tract.

A measure which would help clear the way for both an expansion of the city limits and its stock of new single-family housing will go before the Garden Grove Planning Commission on Thursday, April 6.

Planners will consider five actions, including changes in the general plan and a site plan, toward the construction of a 70-unit single-family home tract in the area of Lampson Avenue and Lewis Street. A segment of the project is now in the City of Orange.

The planned project would be on a 9.01-acre site, but would require the annexation of 0.901 acres of land from Orange into Garden Grove. According to a city staff report this change has been agreed to by the City of Orange.

Under plans submitted by the developer – Shea Homes – the new houses will be two-story buildings with four bedrooms and a two-car garage. The gated development would include a recreation area with a playground, open turf area, two covered barbecue dining areas and a shade structure with bench seating.

Planners will meet at 7 p.m. in the Council Chamber in the Community Meeting Center, 11300 Stanford Ave.
