• Planning Commission May Reschedule Huntington Meeting


    The San Marino Planning Commission scheduled a special meeting for last night that may result in the delay of a community that was intended to discuss a proposed expansion to the Huntington Library, Art Galleries and Botanical Gardens that was scheduled for Tuesday, October 9.

    City Planning director Dave Saldana told The Tribune that citizens were concerned about a lack of time between the release of the Environmental Impact Report for the project – which will be released today – and the October 9 meeting.

    “We have already gone ahead and informed some of the concerned parties who are part of the conversation that the meeting might be re-scheduled,” said Saldana. “We have received a lot of feedback from residents and want to assure that all parties are given fair treatment.”

    The October 9 meeting was originally slated for the Webb Theatre at San Marino High School, but Saldana indicated that location might be changed again to accommodate project stakeholders.

    The Planning Commission will consider re-scheduling the special meeting on Monday, November 5 or Tuesday, November 13 depending on availability.

    Among those who want a seat at the table are the South Allen Neighborhood Association and other neighbors, including Bob DeKruif and a Pasadena City Councilman who lives just across the border.

    The EIR has taken a year to be completed, according to Saldana. The total net accessible new square footage is 42,822  and the total new square footage is 94,701, which includes basement space.
