SUISUN CITY — City Council members will be asked Tuesday night to determine whether a commercial/residential land use proposal is consistent with the city’s adopted revenue-based land use policy.
The discussion involves about 8.6 acres at the southeast corner of Walters Road and East Tabor Avenue. In 2000, the city zoned it 6.0 acres commercial and 2.6 acres of multifamily residential.
Schwartz Land Development has approached the city with changing the land use to 1.5 acres of general commercial use with the remainder used for single-family residential.
The developer has made concessions to address a potential delay in building the commercial component, including transferring the 1.5 acres to the city no later than the second anniversary of the grading permit being issued, if construction hasn’t begun.
The company must also create an aesthetically pleasing entryway to Suisun City until the commercial project gets underway. The preliminary engineer’s estimate for the entryway is $58,995. It includes a “Welcome to Suisun City” sign, totaling about $16.000.
The council will also consider adding a provision to its policy on special sign overlay districts.
The council will meet at 5 p.m. in closed session. The regular meeting starts at 7 p.m. at 701 Civic Center Blvd. A complete agenda can be found at www.suisun.com.
