The commission approved a four-unit townhome project on the corner of Jefferson Avenue and W. 7th Street in Tremont – with a few conditions. The commission agreed the new use was compatible for the neighborhood. The property owner has applied to demolish the current structure, which was partially destroyed in a fire last year.
A representative of Tremont West Development Corp. raised questions from community members about where snow plowed from the parking area would go, where garbage cans would be stored, and whether trees might block the view of a street sign at the busy intersection. Planning Commission Chair Lillian Kuri asked for changes to the townhome closest to Jefferson Avenue to make it feel more like a corner unit. If City Planning staff and the developer can agree on those changes, the project can move forward. If not, it could come back before the commission.
The commission gave its approval on an ordinance that would allow the city’s Public Works department to fix up a giant culvert that runs under Chagrin Boulevard at the city-owned Highland Park Golf Course.
