CALEXICO — City Planning Department officials have put on hold indefinitely a developer's efforts to move forward with the construction of an RV park, housing units and an industrial park on land near the intersection of Cole Road and Highway 98 here.
Planning Director Ricardo Hinojosa said the development consultant working on the interconnected plans for the three separate projects has not amended the plans as the City Council required.
During a City Council public hearing in September, Mayor Victor Carrillo told the development consultant, Tom DuBose of El Centro, that the council would not allow the three projects to be constructed without a $200,000 environmental impact review unless a community park was included in the final design.
DuBose and the developers agreed to amend their plans and the council voted to waive the requirement for the review.
Hinojosa said Monday the developers have not added the park to the final design and have not addressed impacts the development could have on the city and traffic on Cole Road.
