The El Centro Planning Commission unanimously approved a 465-home Buena Vista Park subdivision earmarked for south of Interstate 8 on Clark Road.
The action came Tuesday.
Commission chairman Dennis Bergh said all the major concerns with the project were resolved in the final environmental impact report, and that other concerns expressed by some area residents will be resolved through the development map process.
The project 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 Police Department 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.
