Westmont Hearing Set for February 6

The County Board of Supervisors has set a date for the Westmont College expansion appeal hearing: February 6.

The five supervisors will be taking up the proposed 375,000 square feet of development after the college and neighbors of the schools appealed a Montecito Planning Commission approval of the project.

Dating back to this February, the Montecito Planning Commission heard Westmont 12 times before reaching its decision. Reached by phone Monday, First District Supervisor Salud Carbajal said he and his fellow supervisors would likely make their findings in no more than two hearings.

The first hearing will take place at 9 am in the County Board of Supervisors Hearing Room on the fourth floor of the County Administrative Building, 105 East Anapamu Street. For more info call 568-2186.
