The Pismo Beach Planning Commission voted 3-2 to recommend that the City Council approve a draft pre-annexation and development agreement between the city and the property owner of three parcels in Price Canyon.
Commissioners David Jewell and Kate Shurson dissented. The Spanish Springs proposal includes 390 single-family homes, 83 apartments or condos, 320 senior residential units, a 150-room hotel and conference center, vineyards, a nine-hole golf course and parks in about 960 acres off Price Canyon Road north of the city limits.
Last month, the Planning Commission in a split vote recommended that the council approve documents that would guide development in the Price Canyon area. The properties would have to be annexed into Pismo Beach before being developed.
The draft development agreement serves as a contract between the city and the developer and sets the rules under which the project can be carried out.
The council will likely consider documents relating to the Spanish Springs project starting January 15, according to Community Development Director Jon Biggs.
