Planning Commission addressing requests for Sober-Living Homes permits

Planning Commission addressing requests for Sober-Living Homes permits

Tomorrow evening the Costa Mesa planning commissioners will be addressing requests for city permits from operators of sober-living homes and alcohol and drug treatment facilities at 2417 Orange Ave., 171 and 175 Rochester St., 125 and 131 E. Wilson St. and 235 and 241 E. 18th St. and RAW Recovery LLC, has applied for conditional use permits to operate a sober-living home with up to 22 residents at 3016 and 3018 Jeffrey Drive.

When I served as Mayor, I took the helm with a host of revisions to regulations governing local group and sober-living homes in Costa Mesa – including new rules aimed at increasing transparency and preventing occupants who are evicted or otherwise involuntarily discharged from becoming homeless.  The city’s requirement that group homes and licensed alcohol and drug treatment facilities be at least 650 feet from one another in residential neighborhoods remains a requirement, though the council and Planning Commission can deviate.

The Planning Commission meeting begins at 6 p.m. at City Hall, 77 Fair Drive, Costa Mesa.
