Clovis Council In Expansive Mood
Votes More Housing, Offices, Parking
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.
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.
