City Council meets tonight

The City Council will meet tonight for the second time this month. The agenda looks lighter than the previous council meeting, which ran well after midnight.

Among tonight's agenda items is a request for the council to approve the final parcel map to divide 11.45 acres of Bernard Field Station land into 4 distinct parcels.

The 11.45 acres is owned by Harvey Mudd College and is located north of the Foothill Boulevard frontage road between College and Dartmouth avenues.

The purpose of the subdivision, according to the city staff report, is so that Harvey Mudd can sell half the land to Claremont Graduate University. "Neither academic institution has any developments plans at this time," the report reads.

Still, future development on these properties seems likely. As part of the approval, the city is asking for an agreement requiring a future developer to construct improvements such as street lighting, sidewalk, curb and gutter and undergrounding of utilities.

Also, the subdivider has been required to reserve a 10-foot private easement across the frontage of the parcel map, along both College Avenue and the Foothill Boulevard frontage road. That would allow for space to build a shared bike/pedestrian path and additional street lighting when the properties are developed.

The council will also conduct a 2-year review of their ordinance restricting salons and day spas in the Village and consider changes to funding for the city's Community Based Organization and Homeless Program.
