posted Nov 22, 2012, 9:30 AM by Edward Wustenhoff

"The 5-0 vote approved the plan that reduces the proposed footprint of the new facility at 10 E. Las Palmas Ave., east of Mission Boulevard. Council members also voted to change the area's land-use designation to "private open space," which would make the land subject to a recently approved citizen-led initiative that protects the area from future development."

FREMONT -- After a chaotic three-hour meeting, planning commissioners postponed making a decision on the latest plan by a landowner to develop the area next to Kimber Park.

Thursday's Planning Commission meeting unfolded much like the long-standing dispute surrounding development in the area.

Consultants representing the owner of the Mission Hills Tennis Club touted their proposal's benefits, and Kimber Park residents loudly rejected it, but -- in the end -- there was no resolution.

The commission decided to postpone its vote after Commissioner Lisa Quan departed during a break because of illness. That left just four of the commission's seven members. Roman Reed was absent, and David Bonaccorsi recused himself because of his business relationship with Sheena Chang, managing member of the company that owns the club.

" ....."We have many issues on a variety of fronts with the plan that has been submitted by Mr. Kennedy," Christina Broadwin, co-president of the Save Kimber Park Steering Committee, wrote this week in an email. "We believe it is immoral and unjust to even contemplate rezoning an open space area within a planned development. "Homeowners in our neighborhood purchased here knowing it was a planned development and that the open space parcel had a very specific allowable use and would be preserved." ...."
