The Twentynine Palms City Council will review the Downtown Specific Plan, reconstruction of Mesquite Springs Road, and the proposed position for an Economic Development Specialist when it meets in regular session on Tuesday, March 9, beginning at 6 p.m. at City Hall.
Referred to as the Downtown Economic Revitalization Specific Plan, the final draft prepared by PMC land-use consultants and conceptually approved by the Planning Commission on Feb. 16 entails plans for creating quality, sustainable development and a walkable, pedestrian-oriented downtown Twentynine Palms.
Elements of the 198-page plan include mixed-use commercial-residential zoning for the downtown core, architectural design guidelines, and suggestions for streetscape improvements and traffic-calming medians on the highway and Adobe Road. Residents can view a printed copy of the downtown plan at City Hall, or call 760-367-6799 to order a print or CD version of the document. Upon approval by the City Council, the plan will be incorporated into the current General Plan Update.
Returning to the Council from its regular meeting on Feb. 23 will be a discussion of the Mid-Year Financial Update and a proposed job description and salary to create an Economic Development/Redevelopment Specialist position for the city.
Also on the agenda, the Mesquite Springs Road Rehabilitation Project, consisting of road reconstruction from Two Mile Road to Raymond Drive, will be presented to the Council for discussion and approval to advertise for construction bids.
The City Council meeting begins at 6 p.m. in Council Chambers at Twentynine Palms City Hall, 6136 Adobe Road. For more information call (760)367-6799, or visit the city’s website at www.ci.twentynine-palms.ca.us.
