A rezone of land to clear the way for a huge hotel complex and the extension of the city manager’s contract top the agenda for Tuesday’s meeting of the Garden Grove City Council.
A public hearing will be held on a general plan amendment and planned unit development on Harbor Boulevard from low density residential to “International Mixed Use.” Also before the council will be zoning and development standards for a planned hotel resort on a 5.8-acre site generally on the east side of Harbor Boulevard, south of Chapman Avenue.
Foreseen for the land, which is now the site of some homes, as well as an Italian ice and ice cream store, is a planned high hotel and entertainment complex that could be the largest in the city.
A large, full-service hotel along with two limited-service hotels are projected, with a total of 769 rooms.
There would also be 39,000-square feet of conference-meeting-banquet space and 45,000 square feet devoted to entertainment and restaurant uses, along with two parking structures with 1,927 parking spaces.
The maximum height of the big hotel would be 263 feet, with the smaller ones topping out at 200-square feet.
The council will also consider a one-year extension (with no pay increase) of City Manager Matt Fertal’s contract.
Additionally, the council will consider a development agreement calling for the construction of a 25-unit apartment complex at 12662 Dale St., and a proposal to allow the construction of a 59-foot high auto dealership sign at 9898 and 10150 Trask Ave. Both proposals have generated some controversy.
The council meets in its chambers in the Community Center, 11300 Stanford Ave., at 6:30 p.m.
