Document Description
The site is generally bounded by Ventura Street on the north, O Street on the east, Highway 41 on the south, and M Street on the west and contains an area of approximately 10 acres. The request is simply for authorization to acquire the land for clearance. Although conceptual, the applicant has submitted a site plan which depicts a three (3) story, 60,000 square foot courthouse (which is definite), two five (5) story, 100,000 square foot buildings each, a seven (7) story 210,000 square foot building, an Armenian Cultural Center the size of which is yet to be determined, two (2) surface parking lots, and a five (5) story parking structure. The existing Lavosh Bakery is scheduled to remain. The existing warehouses, restaurant (Red Pepper Cafe), and fire station would either be relocated or demolished. The existing homes may either remain, be relocated on the site, demolished, or relocated to another area. Once an exact location for the homes and buildings has been determined, a site plan will be routed to all relevant agencies. The project design is also pending a traffic study which is being completed at this time; once we receive the traffic study, we will route it to the relevant agencies. Again, this is a request to simply clear the property from all existing improvements, with the exception of the homes, which are being reviewed for their historical significance at this time.
