20-unit apartment complex in Nipomo gets OK from county

A 20-unit multifamily apartment project in Nipomo has received the go-ahead from a county hearing officer.

Supervising planner John Nall approved a minor-use permit on Friday that will allow Bill Kengel of Mesa Dunes Investment to build the apartments at Flint Place, Blume Street and Hill Street.

The project will be on two acres and will consist of seven building clusters of between two and four units. It includes individual back yards and garages, and a 3,000-square-foot common recreation area.
