Plans for the four-story Village Lofts are no more, at least for the foreseeable future.
The planning commission voted unanimously Tuesday night to uphold Community Development Director Brian Desatnik’s voidance of the project and to deny the appeal of property owner and developer Denley Investment and Management.
We had a lot of help organizing the event including volunteer from the Claremont Senior Bike Group, The Rotary Club of Claremont, CHS Interact Club and parents of the kids at Chaparral. The lady behind the drive to get everyone together and organize the event was Melinda Warren, a Chaparral parent. Be sure to check out the story Chaparral students wrote for the Courier.
