Housing has become such a controversial topic in Alhambra that the Planning Commission needs more time and more meetings to get through the two hottest items: an affordable housing ordinance and the proposed housing development The Villages at The Alhambra.
Before Monday’s meeting began the commission decided to give The Villages its own meeting and not address it, though The Villages were up for consideration on the agenda. The special meeting will be Aug. 31 at 6:30 p.m. where staff is encouraging the commission to make a final decision on the project.
At 11 p.m. the commission voted to continue the inclusionary housing ordinance to its own special meeting on Aug. 26 at 7 p.m. and the commission said it is determined to make a final recommendation on the IHO as well.
Both items have drawn hundreds of written comments from the public and dozens of callers over the weeks since the items have been up for the commission’s review.
