CALEXICO — The Planning Commission here set a public hearing for Nov. 26 to review the environmental impacts of the Calexico International Center, a proposed 217-acre mixed-use development proposed for the southwest corner of Jasper Road and Highway 111.
Potential developments at the site include a hotel, gas station, senior housing, fast food restaurants and an RV/mobile home park.
At the upcoming hearing, the commission will review the impacts and the general plan of the project but not its tentative map, according to Planning Director Ricardo Hinojosa.
He explained to the commission at Wednesday's meeting that the developer, Burlingame-based businessman Wen-I Chang and his partners have yet to submit a tentative map because they plan to ask the City Council for funding to build streets and improvements.
Before the finished map is drawn, the developers will require the passage of an "enabling city ordinance" specifying exactly how much of the proposed improvements will be paid with city funds, Hinojosa said.
