The Westminster City Council will hold two public hearings Wednesday (Oct. 26) during its regularly scheduled meeting. Members of the public are invited to speak at the hearings.
The first hearing is an appeal hearing. On Sept. 21 the Westminster Planning Commission denied Kevin Le’s application to build a 2,070-square foot lounge in an existing retail center at 15045 Moran St. The lounge would have provided live entertainment and sold beer and wine for on-site use.
Councilmember Andy Quach is appealing the denial on behalf of Le. But Quach has asked the council to delay the appeal hearing until the Nov. 9 council meeting.
The second hearing is required for the city to make a change to its Community Development Block Grant project list. CDBG funds are federal funds.
The $89,200 Sigler Park Improvement Project has been cancelled. The money, along with another $384,000 that was set aside and not budgeted, will instead be used for the rehabilitation of the Family Resource Center at Sigler Park.
The project includes testing and treating of lead-based paint and renovating the interior and exterior of the center. The project will also ensure that the center meets accessibility standards. Sigler Park is at 7200 Plaza Street.
The council will also hear an update on the I-405 Improvement project. Southern California Edison regional manager Janelle Froisland will address the council about the 125th anniversary of SCE and about alternative energy.
The City Council meeting is held in the Council Chambers at 8200 Westminster Blvd and begins at 7 p.m.
Results of Wednesday night’s city council meeting are too late for our print deadline. A full story will be posted online this Thursday and in our Nov. 3 print edition.
