CALEXICO — This city's planning director said an Applebee's Neighborhood Grill & Bar and a major hotel chain are looking to build on land north of the Calexico 10 Theatres.
During Monday's city Planning Commission meeting a public hearing was set for Oct. 22 to entertain comments on Raul Estrada's plans to divide his land north of the theater into four lots.
If the commission votes to divide the land after the hearing, Applebee's and the hotel chain would each buy one of the lots from Estrada and the city will develop the streets and infrastructure to access the sites per a prior agreement between Estrada and the city, according to Planning Director Ricardo Hinojosa.
In other business, the commission canceled a public hearing on the Calexico International Center project.
According to maps submitted to the commission, the center will include a hotel, executive condominiums, an RV park, senior housing and a gas station on 217 acres near the corner of Highway 111 and Jasper Road.
