The El Centro Planning Commission on Tuesday delayed action until March on a 465-home subdivision earmarked for south of Interstate 8.
Commissioner Chuck Storey said two issues to be addressed include the relocation of the city Police Department's weapons range and the impact of the development on Clark Road traffic.
"I questioned the traffic counts with regard to Clark Road," Storey said, adding other commission members did the same. "There's some question in our minds over how accurate the traffic count is."
The project — Buena Vista Park — would be shaped like an upside down L, with the main east/west portion on 80 acres, and a 40-acre parcel attached at the easternmost side. The northern boundary would be the city's water treatment plant, the weapons range, an Imperial Irrigation District electrical substation and the El Centro Equestrian Center. The eastern boundary would be Clark Road. The southern boundary is described as Palmview Avenue, an existing ditch, rural residences and farmland. The western boundary is defined as Imperial Avenue to the north and Cypress Drive to the south.
