Brandywine eyes alternative housing site after Forbes deal falls flat
Brandywine Homes hasn’t given up on building a housing development in Claremont.
The city of Claremont is currently reviewing plans for a new, proposed residential development on a 1.86-acre site currently owned by City Blessings Church and located at 735 S. Mills Ave., abutting the 10 freeway. Brandywine’s proposed project includes 20, two-story, detached residential homes.
The city will conduct two preliminary project review meetings to provide direction. The planning commission will meet tomorrow, Tuesday, May 20, and the architectural commission will meet Wednesday, May 28. Both meetings will begin at 7 p.m. in the City Council Chamber, located at 225 W. Second St.
No formal action will be taken at either meeting, however, it is anticipated that commissioner’s comments will shape the future use, layout and design of the project, according to a city press release.
All interested persons are invited to appear and address the commissioners. The preliminary plans are on file with the Community Development Department at City Hall, 207 Harvard Ave., and is available for review between the hours of 7 a.m. and 6 p.m., Monday through Thursday.
