Among Cambria project proposals to be reviewed soon by North Coast advisers are a couple with commercial aspects to them.

The North Coast Advisory Council meets next at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, June 15, at Rabobank, 1070 Main St.

According to Laurel Stewart, chairwoman of the council’s Land Use Committee, the full council will consider recommending approval of a proposed conversion of Windrush at 6290 Moonstone Beach Drive into a five-unit motel. It’s currently a residence with two motel units.

As part of the same application, an apartment in the neighboring White Water Inn would be converted into a lobby and additional motel unit. The same corporation owns both properties. The committee is recommending approval.

The second permit application was filed in response to a vacation-rental code violation at 201 Chatham Lane, Stewart said. The applicant has requested that San Luis Obispo County planners grant a waiver from the requirement for a specified-distance buffer zone between vacation rentals.

Stewart said there’s a vacation rental next door to the site and another across the lane, so the committee is recommending denial of the application.

At the June 15 meeting, according to council Chairman Ted Siegler, representatives of the San Luis Obispo Council of Governments will try again to get NCAC approval of a design for a community monument to be placed on Highway 1. Some previous council members had concerns about earlier designs, saying they didn’t think the artwork and typeface proposed then did a good job of representing Cambria.
