Planning Commission approved development on 10/27/16

This section of Fremont Blvd. is designated Commercial even though it is primarily residential. After discussing the situation, the Planning Commission revised the plan to reduce the commercial space by turning the upper floor of the commercial building into a residential flat. They also prohibited retail uses of the commercial space.

The facade of the commercial building in this plan fits the existing Fremont Blvd. streetscape better than the previous Universal Fremont Mixed Use proposal.

No City Council Review Necessary: This application is not a Planned District and will conform to the current zoning. The Planning Commission is the approving body. Only if the Planning Commission decision is appealed would it go before the City Council. See Approval Body section of the Process page.
