TWENTYNINE PALMS PLANNING COMMISSION SAYS YES TO BATCH PLANT, NO TO COMMERCIAL SOLAR

The Twentynine Palms Planning Commission, at three strong, met in regular session last night. Reporter Derwood Andrews said, among other agenda items, it was yes for a batch plant and no to commercial solar…
Last night the Twentynine Palms Planning Commission elected Carey Alderson as Chairman and Greg Mendoza as Vice Chair, with Bill Easter as the third commissioner and a deadline of 25 January for applications for the two vacant seats. The first of development code amendments to be forwarded to City Council was concerning Permitted and Conditional Uses, in particular the definition of the word “Auditorium.” This was a 3-to-0 yes vote. The housing element and Negative Declaration to the City Council was a 2-to-1 vote yes, with Easter no. The limitations on hawking and peddling within Twentynine will be brought back as a study session, using Eureka’s code as a basis and scrapping the current code. The real people drawer was an application from Robertson’s Ready-Mix, to build a Batch Plant on five acres, although buying around 150 acres, rezoning to Community Industrial Designation, and possible annexation into the City. With the fear of leaving the choice to the County of San Bernardino, with less restrictions, Chair Alderson made a motion to rezone 37.5 acres and annex the 150. This drew a 2-to-1 yes vote, Bill Easter no. Lastly was the returned-from-the-City Council, Solar Field issue. Greg Mendoza wanted to shoot it down for good, but as it was a study session, it was agreed to create minimum criteria and mapping and send it back to the City with a “no” to commercial solar in Twentynine.
