City To Consider Approval of Final Tract Map for Townhomes on Arrow Hwy.


The south end of Glendora will see some development after the City Council is expected to approve the final tract map for 23 planned townhomes.

The project proposed by City Ventures will bring condominiums to 1.84 acres of land at 303 E. Arrow Hwy. where existing structures, including Woodies RV Storage and a single-family home built in 1949, still stand.

The proposed development boasts a Spanish-influenced architectural theme. Each home will consist of two stories with floor plans ranging from 1,364 to 1,802 square feet per unit, three bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms and attached two-car garages.

The proposed development was approved by the Glendora City Council November 18, 2014, after being initially brought before city staff in the middle of that same year and first brought before the Planning Commission in September.

Although the project is within Glendora city limits, Arrow Highway south of the project falls within Los Angeles County jurisdiction. The proposed development reportedly is anticipated to produce 13 a.m. peak hour trips and 17 p.m. peak hour trips.

The proposed development would not require a Los Angles County of Public Works Traffic Impact Study, according to City Staff, only in the anticipation of more than 50 peak hour tips.

As an aspect of the process, the city required 38 conditions of approval City Ventures is expected to meet for the development to move forward. All the conditions required to be met before approval have been satisfied, staff said.

Some of the conditions for approval include ensuring building height will not exceed 25 feet and devising a landscaping and irrigation plan to include water efficient plants.

Glendora will receive $85,000 in water rights fees to adequately provide the necessary water for the development, to be paid prior to the approval of the final tract map, City Staff said.

The City Council will discuss this in further detail at the City Council meeting, scheduled for Tuesday, April 14 at 7 p.m. in the Council Chambers, 116 E. Foothill Blvd.
