The Pismo Beach City Council will consider Tuesday whether to move forward a proposal to add 23 single-family homes to a stretch of Price Canyon Road on the city’s eastern boundary.
The lots were created in 1924, and a few critics have questioned whether they were created legally or whether they should remain legal today. City officials have said they believe the lots were created legally when the map was recorded in November 1924.
The project has come to the council and the Pismo Beach Planning Commission several times. Most recently, planning commissioners voted 2-1 in June to recommend approval of the Price Canyon Villas project.
However, they told the council they believe there might be abetter alternative to this project, one that isn’t isolated from the rest of the city and that wouldn’t affect views along Price Canyon Road.
Last year, the commission approved a project that would have allowed developer Mike Hodge to swap that parcel for one located about 1,100 feet west in the Pismo Heights area. But the City Council, facing public opposition and concerns about traffic and fire danger, denied it.
The council meeting starts at 5:30 p.m. at 760 Mattie Road.
