29 Palms Planning Commission – Pot Bellied Pigs and Vacation Home Rentals on Agenda

The Twentynine Palms Planning Commission meets tonight with no less than five public hearings scheduled on issues ranging from Vacation Home Rentals to car washes to potbellied pigs.

The Twentynine Palms Planning Commission will gather Tuesday evening to host five public hearings on various issues. The first is an appeal to deny a Vacation Home Rental (VHR) permit to property owners at 68467 Sullivan Road, just west of the Indian Cove neighborhood. The appeal states that the 2.4-acre property is being developed specifically as a VHR, and therefore, constitutes a business within a residential neighborhood.

Next, planners will consider a conditional use permit for a 3,000 square foot car wash south of Highway 62, between Pine and Oasis Avenues. The plans also include a 2,500 square foot restaurant with outdoor seating, though that aspect will be considered under a separate application.

The commission will then examine a possible amendment to the city’s development code to reflect changes in state law concerning electric vehicle charging stations.

Pot-bellied pigs then become the issue as the commission will consider a development code amendment related the animals’ pet status.

Finally, the commission will consider recommending approval of amendments to the housing, safety and land use elements of the city’s general plan.

The meeting takes place on Tuesday, November 15, and begins at 5:00 p.m. at City Hall, 6136 Adobe Road, and can be livestreamed or viewed on-demand via the city’s website, 29palms.org.
