Due to the development team asking to modify conditions, additional public comments coming in, and recent conversations with the state’s department of housing and community development, the commission moved to continue the item to its January meeting.

“We are concerned that the commission also may have not had sufficient time to review some of the changes and be able to fully assess the new information,” said Community Development Director Denyelle Nishimori.

Phase Two of the project includes four buildings with a total of 31,523 square feet of commercial floor area, and 69 multifamily residential units. The buildings range in height from two to four stories and include retail, office, and food service on the ground floor of each building.

The project is part of the Joerger Ranch Specific Plan, which was approved in March 2015. Phase One of the Soaring Ranch project was approved in March 2018, allowing the development of 119,704 square feet of retail space. The site is home to the recently opened Raley’s and Mountain Hardware & Sports.

The commission unanimously approved of continuing the item, which will appear on the Jan. 19 agenda.
