A hearing on proposed changes to Westminster’s Comprehensive Plan will go to the city’s Planning Commission Jan. 14.
Commissioners are scheduled to hear about developer Oread Capital’s plan to allow greater density on two parcels that would make up part of their Uplands Development.
Development group Oread Capital is advancing the Uplands plan to develop the farmland between 84th and 88th avenues and Federal and Lowell Boulevards, land owned by the Pillar of Fire Church, as well as parcels east of Federal and on both sides of Bradburn Drive west of Lowell.
The meeting was originally set for Dec. 10 but was postponed twice to make sure neighbors and people interested in the project received sufficient notice of the meeting.
The meeting is set to begin at 7 p.m.
The developers are asking to rezone a vacant parcel west of Lowell Boulevard on either side of Bradburn Drive. The current zoning there allows three housing units per acre. The zoning request would allow five.
They also hope to change the zoning on a vacant parcel east of Federal Boulevard and south of 84th from office to allow up to eight housing units per acre. They would also designate a one-acre parcel at 88th and Zuni to make it open space. It’s currently zoned for office uses.
Oread’s plan calls for converting the large open space surrounding the church into a massive mixed-use development, with housing options ranging from single-family homes to apartments and townhomes as well as parks and commercial areas.
It would ultimately have to be approved by the City Council.
