Clovis Council In Expansive Mood

Votes More Housing, Offices, Parking lots!
By Amy Williams, Assoc. Editor

      CLOVIS -- By unanimous vote, the Clovis City councilmembers approved another subdivision on Willow Avenue where the Old Town Trail crosses Teague Avenue. The matter has been pending since August when the Planning Commission failed to approve the tract map over issues of safety and street access. In the interim, local subdivision developer Kevin Castanos made changes in the subdivision plan and then obtained numerous signatures of area residents on a petition expressing support for the plan.
      The new plan map provides for (1)residents to have improved access to the subdivision from Nees Avenue; and (2) Wathen-Castanos will add access on Teague Avenue from Peach Avenue to Willow Avenue to accommodate anticipated vehicular traffic through the neighborhood from Buchanan High School student drivers.
      There was finally a resolution of the long standing dispute between a local businessman and councilmembers, when the council unanimously approved the sale of 30,000 square feet of City property to businessman Michael H. Ricci for construction of a private parking lot to accommodate tenants and commercial customers of his office building at the 754 3rd. Street which includes the Clovis Free Press executive offices.
      In another reprise, the council unanimously (Wynn abstained} approved rezoning for expansion of the Clovis Country Center shopping complex at Shaw and Armstrong avenues.
            And the council, in an expansive mood, approved rezoning for the United Japanese Christian Church for a expansion of a preexisting residence.
      And local subdivision developer Spalding Wathen obtained the go-ahead on a 65-lot residential project at the Gettysburg and Locan avenues.
